Introduced by Rep. Eric Leutheuser (R) on March 15, 2018 To amend the state law banning "pyramid promotional schemes," with a new definition of schemes that require an individual to pay for the opportunity to receive compensation derived primarily from bringing other people into the scheme, rather than from selling products and services. Among other methods, the bill distinguishes such schemes from allowable multi-level marketing programs (like Amway or Mary Kay cosmetics) by specifying that participants obtain unreasonable amounts of inventory.
