There is a bill heading its way through the legislature: A3333
I will address many aspects of this bill, but it should be named properly since it is 100% anti-consumer and reduces if not completely eliminates the the Consumer Fraud Act. That’s right, it repeals the CONSUMER FRAUD ACT as a practical matter. Watch out, consumers, it’s open season on your pocketbooks if this bill passes.
I am calling this bill:
AMY HANDLIN CONSUMER FRAUD CREATION AND JOB DESTRUCTION BILL OF 2011
Lets look at the worst provision of the bill bar none, which would exempt car dealerships form the Consumer Fraud Act!!
b. not apply to actions or transactions otherwise permitted or regulated by the Federal Trade Commission or any other regulatory body or officer acting under statutory authority of this State or the United States.
