NJ Assembly Bill 4259 is an example of bad public policy, and Governor Murphy should veto this bill immediately. The legislation was introduced and passed in a speedy and hidden way, without any proper notice and public comment. As written, the legislation will create a more powerful monopoly in New Jersey, and will strip many important consumer protections currently in place in the state - protections that serve as a model in the U.S. for other states. It will allow venues and ticket issuers to hold-back as many tickets as it wishes from going on sale publicly! As a result, adopting A.4259 will limit choices consumers have when it comes to buying tickets, and it will drive prices unnecessarily higher. Protect Ticket Rights sent this letter calling on Governor Murphy to protect the rights of ticket buyers and ticketholders by vetoing A.4259.
