Ticket Broker Bill

Please submit a slip of support for HB3958 which is coming up for a committee meeting on Monday, April 7, 2014.  The bill forces ticket brokers to disclose that they are brokers and let patrons know the name and contact information for the theatre.  This bill will prevent brokers from masking their sites as a theatre box office and will prevent patrons from buying tickets that are exorbitantly priced or counterfeit.

The instructions look cumbersome, but it only takes 5 minutes.
