Submitted by Doug Doe on Mon, 06/06/2016 - 5:12pm

In counties where the Governor or the President has declared a state of emergency:

  • During the declaration of emergency and for 30 days thereafter, price increases of 10% or more on most goods and services are prohibited.
  • During the declaration of emergency and for 180 days thereafter, price increases of 10% or more on dwelling units, storage space and goods related to home repair or restoration are prohibited.
  • Common complaints:
    • Food and Water
    • Hotel Rooms and Apartments
    • Rental Cars
    • Building Materials
