Ticket resale bill is discussed

State lawmakers are again considering a measure to legalize ticket scalping in Michigan. The measure, before a state House committee Tuesday, would repeal a 1931 state law that prohibits a person from selling sports or entertainment tickets for a profit without approval from a venue operator. Bill sponsor, House Republican Tim Kelly of Saginaw, says it’s a commonsense measure that would let the free market decide the price of a ticket. But venue operators argue the 1931 law is on the books to protect consumers. An attempt to pass a ticket resale bill was made last year, but it stalled in the House.  (MRN)
