VETO OF ASSEMBLY BILL No. 829 TO REGU

LATE THE SALE OF THEATRE TICKETS

STATE OF NEW YORK
Executive Chạmber

Albany, May 27, 1899 Memorandum filed with Assembly bill number 829 (Intro

ductory No. 475), entitled An Act to prevent fraud in the sale of theatre tickets ".- Not approved

It appears that this bill passed the Legislature on April 26th, but it did not reach the Executive Chamber until May 25th, and it was then impossible for me to take it up until May 27th, owing to the immense pressure of public business. The bill seems to be right in principle, but it is so drawn as to affect not merely theatres but in all probability every form of public entertainment, such as Chautauquas, church fairs, and the like, whether great or small, and for which an admission price is charged. I am inclined to think that even as regards these it is right at least in principle; but it is wholly impossible now to consult the interests that would be affected so as to find out whether or not the bill would in its action work hardship to some of them. The bill is therefore not approved.
