Hearing scheduled next week.
Texas lawmakers next week will hold hearings on whether sports fans and concert goers can scalp their tickets.
Chris Grimm with the group Fan Freedom says it’s your right if you want to resell a ticket for more than face value.
"If someone is willing to pay two, three, four times face value of those tickets, that's the free market at work, that's supply and demand," Grimm tells KTRH News.
Legislation from Friendswood state Senator Larry Taylor also would ban venues from stopping a resale and removes some restrictions requiring identification when fans pick up their tickets.
"When fans buy tickets, we own them, we have the right to use them, give them away or sell them, that's our choice," Grimm says. "If I buy a car, the dealer can't tell me that I can't resell that car, or I can only resell it at their dealership at the price they choose."
Grimm says the entire industry is stacked against fans.
"For most of the popular concerts, there are only ten percent of tickets available when they go sale," he says. "The other 90 percent have already gone to the fan club and certain credit card holders for pre-sale, or the artists, venue, supporting acts and sponsors."
