Legislation to require retailers to print their refund policy on their customer receipts went nowhere in the 2018 regular session.
Sen. Trip Pittman, R-Daphne, wanted a printed refund policy to include whether an exchange, store credit or cash refund was offered; any limitations on the types of goods that could not be exchanged, credited or refunded; and the length of time a consumer had to bring back merchandise.
SB374 made no provisions for the cost of reprogramming cash registers or for those retailers who provide hand-written receipts. It never received even committee consideration.
