Call and/or email members of the Senate Commerce and Tourism Committee Today, February 8, Before 4:00 p.m. ET

Please help stop ticket scalpers.

Status:  SB 1344, dealing with the resale of tickets, comes before the Senate Commerce and Tourism Committee today, February 8, at 4:00 p.m.  This is not a good bill and harms our performing arts centers and theatre companies, along with other Florida sports and entertainment industry organizations.

Purpose of Bill:  Ticket scalpers aim to use SB 1344 to dictate how event presenters can sell what they create.  This is as simple as the Florida event presenter vs. out-of-state scalpers and companies. Go here for greater detail.

Quick Action For You to Take Before 4  EST Today:  Please take two minutes now to either call members of this Senate Committee or send quick emails to them before 4:00 p.m. today ET or both.  Members of this Senate committee are listed below, along with their contact information.

Suggested Message:  Inform them of your name and organization and ask the Senator to please not support SB 1344 in the Senate Commerce and Tourism Committee meeting this afternoon.  This bill is harmful to Florida's economy, sports and entertainment venues, and consumers.  Thank them for their time and consideration of your request.
