House of Representatives
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session

To: All House members
Subject: Cash for school sponsored-activities
In the near future I plan to introduce legislation that will require cash to be an acceptable form of payment for admission to school-sponsored activities.
Several schools across our Commonwealth have started to not accept cash as a form of payment for admission to school-sponsored activities such as sporting events. Instead of accepting cash, spectators are now required to utilize a credit card for the cost of admission, with some events only offering ticket sales exclusively online or through an app.
This has produced difficulties for individuals who do not utilize credit cards or who do not have the technical capabilities to access the internet or an app for ticket purchases. This especially Disenfranchises our senior citizens, who would like to watch and support their grandchildren at school-sponsored activities but cannot because they do not have the ability to download an app to purchase the tickets.
Anybody willing to pay with the legal currency of the United States, should not be denied entry to a school-sponsored activity, simply because they do not have a credit card, or the means of utilizing the internet or an app to purchase a ticket.
Please join me in co-sponsoring this important piece of legislation.

Introduced as HB2176
