In the wake of the election of Donald Trump, lawmakers are looking for ways to combat the threat of scalping.
A new bill aims to curb online ticket sales.
The New York state Assembly is currently considering a bill that would establish a uniform online ticketing system for the state’s roughly 6 million registered voters.
The state Senate is considering similar legislation.
The bill has a long way to go before it can become law, but lawmakers are hoping to push it through this session.
According to the Associated Press, the bill would establish the Uniform Ticketing System, which would establish uniform pricing for all tickets and allow consumers to track their purchases online.
Currently, online ticket purchases are capped at $25 for a single transaction and capped at 20,000 tickets for the same transaction.
This bill would allow for more transactions and more tickets for consumers to buy.
According the bill, a uniform system would be implemented across all New York City and Nassau County and all non-public transportation systems.
The bill would also establish a commission to study and recommend a uniform ticketing program.
The legislation would also give the commissioner of public transportation the authority to set and enforce ticket pricing.
The proposed law would require any person or entity that violates the Uniform Tickets and Registration Act to pay a civil penalty of up to $10,000 for each violation, as well as an additional $10 per ticket to the Department of Consumer Protection.
It would also require that the Department issue warnings to violators, which it did with a notice in the New York Times.
A similar bill was introduced in the Massachusetts House of Representatives.
It has received little attention in the state.
A spokesperson for the New Jersey State Senate told The Hill that the bill has not received enough attention in that chamber.
