Apparel-cleaning serves; discrimination; civil penalty. Prohibits a cleaning establishment from discriminating against a person because of the person's gender with respect to the price charged for apparel-cleaning services of similar or like kind. Price differences based specifically upon the amount of time, difficulty, or cost of providing the apparel-cleaning services do not violate this prohibition. The measure also requires each cleaning establishment to provide a customer with a complete written price list upon request. Violations are subject to a civil penalty of up to $100. Read the Bill »
