Bill introduced in Del. would fine businesses for not accepting cash

DOVER, Del. – Some lawmakers in Delaware say that businesses in the state need to be willing to accept cash.

A bill that would prohibit any businesses from refusing to accept cash from a consumer making an in-person purchase was introduced on Tuesday. Senate President David McBride says that not everyone has a bank account, and many people are not able to obtain credit or debit cards.

If passed, any person who fails to comply with the law could be fined up to $10,000 per violation.
