Benson, Moriarty, Mukherji, Oliver & McKnight Bill to Help Prevent Consumers from Getting Roped Into Endless Auto-Renewals Gains Assembly OK

A consumer protection measure sponsored by Assembly Democrats Daniel R. Benson, Paul Moriarty, Raj Mukherji, Sheila Oliver and Angela McKnight recently was approved by the General Assembly, moving New Jersey closer to requiring notification to customers when a contract is to be renewed automatically.

"So many highly-used services out there today include automatic renewal provisions in their contracts," said Benson (D-Mercer/Middlesex).

By requiring a clear display of the terms and advance notice prior to renewal, this bill will give consumers the opportunity to make more informed choices."
