Cashless Stores Ban (HB 299)

Updated: Jun 14, 2022

HB 299 passed the House and now awaits consideration in the Senate.


Discrimination of any kind should never be tolerated. Recognizing the immediate need to help people in the 16th District and beyond, Rep. Frank Cooke introduced HB 299, which would ensure consumers aren't negatively impacted by cashless stores.

Stores that exclude people from paying with cash can have a discriminatory effect for residents who don’t have access to a credit or debit card to buy goods. In Delaware, a growing population of homeless, low-income, and young people do not have electronic forms of payments or sufficient access to mainstream financial services typically offered by retail banks. HB 299, would help residents who often rely on cash because they don't have a bank account, ultimately banning cashless stores.

HB 299 passed the House and now awaits consideration in the Senate.
