AG Derek Schmidt Addresses Price Gouging Law due to COVID-19

 

Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt joined KGGF Tuesday morning to discuss COVID-19 and how that's currently affecting the state.

 

According to Schmidt, a state price gouging law that prohibits profiteering by raising prices on items consumers find necessary because of the Coronavirus outbreak is now in effect statewide.

 

Schmidt also mentions that during times like this are when some people try to take advantage of others.

 

Examples of goods and services that are in effect with this law include, but are not limited to are food items, sanitary and cleaning supplies, emergency and medical supplies, lodging, and any other property or service for which consumer demand may increase in response to the virus.

 

The law will remain in effect until April 11th, or until the disaster declaration is lifted, whichever is later.

 

Anyone with information regarding a potential price gouging violation should file a complaint with the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division online at www.InYourCornerKansas.org or by calling 800-432-2310.
