Hotel owner to face $1000 fine and up to six months in jail after after enforcement of state price-gouging law (HT: Knowledge Problem).  Oh, and the AG would also like the power to declare a state of emergency for the sole purpose of enforcing the price-gouging law in response to some crafty business owners who weren’t waiting for the Governor to declare a state of emergency before responding to supply shocks.
