House passes update to individual item retail price labeling

By Ricky Campbell

Affixing individual pricing labels to things like groceries wouldn’t be required any longer, under a bill passed 130-0 Wednesday by the House.

Sponsored by Rep. Greg Davids (R-Preston) and Sen. Mark Koran (R-North Branch), HF2096/ SF2008* would remove what Davids called outdated language from the law governing how retail prices are posted. The bill, which passed the Senate 64-0 on May 1, now heads to the governor.

Davids said the bill would provide retailers “flexibility” in how they list prices, which would still require “conspicuously displayed” prices. The bill wouldn’t require stores to attach prices to each individual item.
