Connecticut Passes Fan-friendly Ticket Legislation
On Tuesday, June 6th, Governor Malloy signed House Bill 7114 into law and added Connecticut to the list of states that protect their fans by ensuring choice and competition in the ticket market. This legislation mirrors the New York law in that it ensures consumers always have the choice to buy a transferable ticket at the initial point of sale. It goes on to prohibit ticket issuers from denying admission to an event solely on the grounds that the ticket was resold. The legislation exempts student tickets for events held by or on behalf of public institutions of higher education, and also allows venues under 3,500 seats to seek an exemption.
StubHub commends the passage of this common sense legislation and encourages more states to follow suit on behalf of their fans!
