Legislation to Legalize Ticket Scalping Being Discussed

Townsquare Media

Legislation being discussed in Lansing could change how concert tickets are sold and for how much!

WNEM says a bill that would repeal the state’s rarely enforced ban against ticket scalping has made its way through the Michigan House of Representatives. Right now, selling a ticket above face value could lead to a jail time and a fine.

Supporters of the bill say letting people buy and sell tickets freely will help consumers. Opponents – such as entertainment venues – say the legislation will lead to higher prices in the resale market. They are hoping to block the bill in the state Senate.

What do you think? How do you typically buy your concert or sports tickets? Do you think this will lead to higher or lower ticket prices?
