Senate passes bill to make scalping legal

A bill to legalize ticket scalping in Minnesota passed 48 to 15 in the state Senate Monday. Ticket scalping is now recognized as "a legitimate secondary market." The ticket scalping law was sporadically enforced, though.

The Minnesota Daily added that many scalpers had no idea that the bill was passed.

The Star Tribune made a good decision in writing this story. As the Daily said, scalpers did not know about the bill, so the Strib told them.
