Lawmakers: Stop gouging
Wyoming state Sens. Mike Gierau and Jim Roscoe and state Reps. Andy Schwartz and Michael Yin are among nearly 350 state legislators from 45 states who joined the U.S. PIRG Education Fund in a letter asking Amazon, Walmart and other online marketplaces to take steps to prevent price gouging on their platforms. As one example, U.S. PIRG said, the prices on Amazon for most hand sanitizers and masks rose at least 50% higher than the 90-day average.
