Retail Establishments Accept Cash Enforcement

Abstract

Current law requires retail establishments to accept United States currency. One of the exceptions to the requirement is for security deposits. A violation of the requirement by a retail establishment is a civil infraction punishable by a fine of $250. The bill exempts retail establishments in which the primary method of selling goods or services is through an automatic renewal contract and defines "retail establishment" and "security deposit". A violation by a retail establishment is made a deceptive trade practice, which means that the attorney general and each district attorney has enforcement authority under the "Colorado Consumer Protection Act". The attorney general is authorized to bring a civil and criminal action to enforce the provision.
