BILL NUMBER:S6481

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend
chapter 704 of the laws of 1991, amending the arts and cultural affairs
law and chapter 912 of the laws of 1920 relating to the regulation of
boxing and wrestling relating to tickets to places of entertainment and
chapter 151 of the laws of 2010, amending the arts and cultural affairs
law relating to resale of tickets to places of entertainment, in
relation to making the provisions of such chapters permanent

PURPOSE:
To permanently extend the existing statue on the resale of
tickets.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:
This legislation would permanently extend the
present law on the resale of tickets.

JUSTIFICATION:
In the 2010 legislative session, significant changes
were made to the regulation of the sale and resale of tickets to
places of entertainment. During the 2011 legislative session, the law
was extending for one year expiring on May 14, 2012. The 2010
revision has not created serious disruptions in the marketplace, and
as such, a yearly review of the statute is no longer necessary. The
sponsor will continue to protect consumers and their rights.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
New Bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
None.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
