Legislation: Governor Signs Consumer Protection Bills

On Wednesday, Governor Ritter signed consumer protection bills HB 10-1249 and SB 10-155 (audio available here).

HB 10-1249 (.pdf) speeds the sale of foreclosed properties by reducing the number of days for a sale.

SB 10-155 (.pdf) puts requirements on gift card issuers to protect consumers by banning retailers, restaurants and others from selling gift cards that have any type of service or maintenance fee. Gift card issuers must also redeem the card, upon request, if the remaining value is $5 or less.
