State lawmakers are sending the governor a bill that cracks down on re-sellers looking to gouge people buying tickets for concerts and sports events.
The bill expands the existing law by requiring operators or their agents and ticket re-sellers to clearly disclose all fees and surcharges associated with the purchase of tickets. And re-sellers will have to disclose if they don't yet have tickets at the time they are being advertised.
The bill also prohibits the use of a name in a website or web address that is intended to confuse people into thinking they are buying a ticket directly from an operator or operator's agent when in fact they are on a secondary market website. And it requires ticket re-sellers post a clear notice on their website stating that it is for the secondary sale of tickets.
