New bill would allow easy ticket resell

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

One lawmaker may change how tickets to big games are bought and sold.

Rep. Paul Lee, R- Houston, is sponsoring a bill which has been dubbed as the “stub hub” bill.

Lee says once someone decides to drop the money to buy a ticket, it should be their personal property to buy and sell as they want to.

“I think, personally, once you buy it, it’s yours to do with whatever you would like to do with it. Give it away, sell it, whatever the case may be, rather than have to turn it in back to the company, allow them to resell it and make more money on resale,” Lee said.

Currently, some tickets force the purchaser to resell the ticket to the original vendor.

The bill passed out of the house last week and will now try to move though the senate when lawmakers return in April.
