PUERTO RICO-ELDERLY ENTERTAINMENT
Puerto Rico cuts entertainment perks, free tickets for elderly

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Friday, July 4, 2014 10:23 AM EDT
SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico


Puerto Rico's governor is making it more expensive for elderly citizens to have fun in the U.S. territory.

Alejandro Garcia Padilla has signed a law backed by the entertainment industry that imposes greater restrictions on discounted or free tickets.

The law cancels a previous measure that required theaters and other entertainment venues to give free tickets to people 75 years or older. It also raises the age at which people legally must receive a 50 percent discount from 60 to 65 years old.

Puerto Rico's entertainment industry complained that the previous law was stifling productions and hurting the economy.

Garcia signed the bill on Thursday.
