LANSING, Mich. (AP) — The Michigan House is expected to vote to lift the state’s rarely enforced ban on ticket scalping, bringing the long-proposed bill closer to the governor’s desk.
The legislation would end a prohibition on the resale of tickets for more than face value.
Currently, the law only allows scalping if a venue permits the excess charge in writing. Violators face a misdemeanor. The House will vote Tuesday.
The Senate approved a version of the measure in January and would need to OK House changes.
The bill also would prohibit the use of “bot” software to interfere with online ticket-purchasing limits.
