Jeffersonville, IN, which is located in the southeastern corner of the state near Louisville, KY, is considering a new law that would require ticket resellers, particularly street scalpers, to obtain a license. According to WHAS-TV, city officials are looking at requiring resellers to pay $2,500 for a license and submit to background checks. The issue arose following complaints that fans of the Kentucky Derby, which is held at nearby Churchill Downs each year, were being scammed. Ticket resale is legal in Indiana but prohibited in Kentucky.
