SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — 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.
