Michigan, New Jersey Consider Fan-Friendly Ticket Legislation
Our commitment to protecting the rights of fans extends to fighting for fan-friendly ticket legislation in states across the country. Right now, Michigan and New Jersey are leading the charge by introducing a number of fan-friendly ticket reforms.
We support these bills, and we hope you do too.
In Michigan, the State Senate is considering ticket legislation (SB 1186 and 1187) that will protect fans from deceptive ticket practices and ensure that fans own the tickets they buy. The bills prohibit the use of restrictive tickets that limit fans’ ability to give away or transfer our tickets and ban the use of software “bots” that snatch up tickets before fans have a fair chance to buy them.
In New Jersey, legislators are considering common sense, bipartisan pieces of ticket legislation (S875/A2258) that will increase transparency in the ticketing market and protect the rights of fans like you. They require ticketing agencies to disclose how many tickets to an event are offered for sale to the general public, prohibit technology that restricts the ability of fans to resell tickets and ban the use of software “bots” that snatch up tickets before fans have a fair chance to buy them.
Legislators need to know that their constituents support these ticket reforms. If you live in these states (or know someone who does) contact your legislator and voice your support for these bills.
