(a) As used in this section: 14 (1) ``Credit card'' means any card, plate or other single credit device 15 that may be used from time to time to obtain credit. Since this involves 16 the possibility of repeated use of a single device, checks and similar in- 17 struments that can be used only once to obtain a single credit extension 18 are not credit cards. 19 (2) ``Credit card issuer'' means any person who issues a credit card, 20 or the agent of such person, with respect to such card. 21 (3) ``Person'' means any natural person, firm, association, organiza- 22 tion, partnership, corporation or company. 23 (b) Credit card issuers shall not solicit any individual to become credit 24 card holders while such credit issuer or individual is on the campus of 25 any state, municipal or private college or university in this state. 26 (c) Any credit card issuer violating the provisions of this section shall 27 be fined not less than $500 nor more than $5,000 for each violation. 28 Sec. 2. This act shall take effect and be in force from and after its 29 publication in the statute book.
