Provides that if a consumer purchases merchandise, it is an unlawful practice for the seller of the merchandise to enroll the consumer in a "club" or group whereby the consumer will periodically receive from the seller or another person shipments of similar merchandise not ordered or otherwise expressly requested by the consumer, unless the consumer expressly agrees in writing to be enrolled in the "club" or group and receive such periodic shipments of merchandise. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with similar provisions, amending the Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act, but with the following changes: (1) provides that if a consumer purchases merchandise, it is an unlawful practice under the Act for the seller of the merchandise to periodically send and debit the consumer's account for shipments of similar merchandise, unless the consumer has agreed, by express request or consent, to receive such periodic shipments of merchandise (instead of making it an unlawful practice for the seller to enroll the consumer in a "club" or group whereby the consumer will periodically receive from the seller or another person shipments of similar merchandise not ordered or otherwise expressly requested by the consumer, unless the consumer expressly agrees in writing to be enrolled in the "club" or group and receive such periodic shipments of merchandise); and (2) provides that the seller must clearly and conspicuously disclose any minimum purchase requirement and how the consumer may cancel periodic shipments. Effective immediately.
