Tennessee Legislature Shelves Secondary Ticket Market Legislation

NASHVILLE, TN (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — A bill to regulate the secondary ticket market in Tennessee was shelved on Tuesday when the state's Senate shuffled the legislation into a sub-committee study group for "further exploration."

The Fairness in Ticketing Act would have required ticket brokers to provide ticket purchasers with refund information and the actual face value of the tickets purchased on a secondary market site.

Opponents of the bill, including the secondary ticketing market lobby group Fan Freedom Project, argued that some provisions in the bill would simply strengthen primary market players and "restrictive paper ticketing."

Though the bill has been relegated to committee, the state legislature could take it up again this session. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
