Protecting Consumers From Price Gouging

Today, I testified remotely before the Joint Committee on Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure on a bill I authored to control price gouging. While we do have a regulation to protect consumers from price gouging at gas stations during an emergency, a law that has been on the books for decades since the gas crisis, my new legislation will establish a broader set of consumer protections. As supply chains continue to be strained, I want to be ahead of the curve to make sure we had the right tools in place.
