Senate Gives Final Approval To 'Stub Hub' Bill

Just before midnight on Thursday, the state Senate gave final approval to a bill that seeks to protect concertgoers and theater aficionados who buy tickets on the secondary market.

"How many of you...remember getting concert tickets and being able to trade them off with friends or selling them?'' asked Sen. Kevin Witkos, R-Canton.

"Over the past few years, there were conditions placed on them--you had to show up at the venue with the number of people in your party, all at one time, to be allowed in...or you had to have the credit card that was used to purchase the ticket."
