Sedgwick County District Attorney Nola Foulston says it started when Taylor Swift tickets went on sale.
"It got me fired up," says Foulston who has started investigating ways to stop ticket scalping.
Foulston's office received many complaints from consumers who found tickets on-line for well over their face value.
"Their concerns were we spent tax dollars putting up this arena and how come we can't even get ticket."
Kansas doesn't have anti-scalping laws on the books. It's left up to individual cities to write and enforce their own laws. Those laws typically apply to people who stand outside of an event and sell tickets.
With the Internet, very few ticket scalpers work that way anymore. "The problem is most of these people live around the country some around the worlds."
Foulston says a state law would help. "As soon as I reviewed this I talked with the Kansas Attorney General and expressed the need for us to review this for the state because it is a matter of statewide concern."
Foulston says it will take time because new legislation will have to be written, but even then it won't stop ticket scalping.
"It's almost an impossibility of enforcing it because of jurisdictional issues." But Foulston says it could slow the problem.
