Hide Profile

The Assembly Standing Committee on Consumer Affairs and Protection was established in January 1975 in response to the "consumer movement" phenomenon which was beginning to coalesce throughout the country at that time. It was designed to investigate consumer abuses and to develop possible remedies, while at the same time maintaining fair and realistic treatment of the business community. Prior to its creation most consumer-related bills were referred to other assembly standing committees such as Agriculture, Commerce, and Industry and Economic Development. The committee is responsible for developing legislation to protect consumers' rights. It also strives to ensure that individual consumers have access to sufficient information to make informed choices about competing goods and services offered for sale.
