WASHINGTON, D.C. – American Conservative Union (ACU) Chairman Al Cardenas today issued the following statement applauding the advancement of anti-restrictive ticketing in Minnesota. H.F. 657 and S.F. 425 are now scheduled for hearings in the Minnesota House Commerce and Regulatory Reform Committee and the Senate Commerce and Consumer Protection Committee in the coming days. The legislation is sponsored by Minnesota State Senator Chris Gerlach (R) and State Representative Joe Hoppe (R).
“The American Conservative Union strongly supports H.F. 657 and S.F. 425, companion bills protecting competition and ticketholders’ rights in the live event ticketing market.
“Ticketholders are threatened by restrictive ticketing – a concerted effort to extend monopolies and radically restrict what consumers can do with the tickets they buy. The ACU was founded to preserve freedom and conservatives across the country understand the importance of protecting individual property rights and a free and open market.
“On behalf of our tens of thousands of members and supporters in Minnesota, we applaud Senator Gerlach’s and Representative Hoppe’s efforts on this issue and encourage both committees to pass this important legislation. We look forward to engaging in the legislative process throughout the coming weeks.”
The American Conservative Union is America’s oldest and largest grassroots conservative organization and was founded in 1964.
