Fed up with sticker shock when you want to buy tickets as advertised, and then get walloped with service charges and other fees.
This bi-partisan bill would require that the real cost is the advertised cost.
A hot-under-the-collar fan of this bill writes in: “HB 1978 would require that when a price is advertised for tickets, it’s the full price, including the facilities charges and convenience charges that Ticketbastard adds on. It would stop, say, The End from advertising tickets at $10.77 each when the real price you pay per ticket is more than double that (as happened with Endfest a couple years ago).”
