Consumer Protections Laws Could Get Facelift

January 30, 2014, 5:00 PM

Consumer Protections Laws Could Get Facelift

Laws designed to protect, you the consumer, could get a facelift.

A senate bill that would update consumer protection laws unanimously passed committee. The laws haven't had a major overhaul since the 70s.

The changes take into account modern technology and make it easier to prosecute scam artists.

They also would crack down on people who steal from stores and sell the products elsewhere. Organized retail crime costs taxpayers millions of dollars each.

“This affects everyone. Obviously we as a retailer, if we lose the money, the company has to make up that money somehow,” Loss Prevention Investigator Brian Swensen said.

And that could mean higher prices.

Supporters say this bill could help slow that crime and others.
