WASHINGTON (WJON News) -- Concert fans may soon know the actual price of a ticket when they purchase it. U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar has introduced the "Fans First Act" bill to address current live event ticketing system flaws.

The bill addresses ticket sales transparency, consumer protection, and stopping bad actors. Klobuchar says buying a ticket to see a favorite artist is out of reach for too many people and the bipartisan bill will improve the ticketing experience for everyone. The bill will also further prohibit bots from buying tickets and will require retailers to show the final cost of a ticket, including fees when a person first picks a ticket for purchase.

Earlier this year Klobuchar led a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing to address the need to promote competition in the ticketing industry. Senators John Cornyn, Marsha Blackburn, Ben Ray Lujan, Roger Wicker, and Peter Welch co-sponsored the bill.
