Friday, we released our latest policy brief titled, “Why Arkansas’s Anti-Scalping Laws Should Be Repealed.”
The paper, authored by Alex Cartwright, makes the case that anti-scalping laws encourage counterfeiting, encourage fraud, and create consumer confusion. Rather than protect the consumer, anti-scalping laws encourage underground-market activity and restrict the public’s access to events.
HB1404 by Rep. Doug House addresses many of these concerns and was voted down by the House on Friday, but can be brought back up for consideration before the end of session.
