House Lawmakers Pass Bipartisan Ticketing Reform

Legislation improves transparency around ticket pricing

May 16, 2024

Yesterday, the House of Representatives voted to pass the TICKET Act (H.R. 3950), bipartisan ticket pricing transparency legislation. Sponsored by Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) and Gus Bilirakis (R-FL), this bill will require sellers to display the total price of a ticket—including fees—in advertisements, marketing, and other promotional materials.

“Pricing transparency is a commonsense reform for the ticketing industry, which has long been dominated by Ticketmaster,” said Todd O’Boyle, Senior Director of Technology Policy at Chamber of Progress. “In 2023, the Taylor Swift ticketing fiasco exposed how Ticketmaster wields its monopoly power to impose exorbitant prices and excessive fees on consumers. The TICKET Act will help level the playing field across the entire ticketing industry and restore power to fans.”

Initially introduced in June 2023, the TICKET Act has drawn support from consumer advocacy groups including the National Consumers League.
