Alaska Bill Specifies

Contract Rules for Active Military

On January 24, legislation was introduced in the Alaska state legislature that would allow members of the military to terminate or suspend their health club contract and other types of consumer services when relocating for military service.
House Bill 307 states that a service member may, upon written notice, terminate or suspend a health club contract when relocating for service of at least ninety days. The legislation allows the member to specify in the notice the date of contract termination. In addition, the bill allows the member to reinstate the contract upon returning from service.

IHRSA supported similar bills in recent years in Arizona, Indiana and Oregon.
