REDDING, Calif. - A bill designed to lift barriers for customers who cannot or don’t want to pay with credit card.

It's called SB 926. San Mateo Senator Jerry Hill introduced and authored the bill.

It’s a growing trend, going cashless. But there are still some who like to pay using good old fashion cash.

“I just like cash cause if I have the money in my hand and people see that I have money,” said Antony Garcia of Redding.

SB 926 would protect people who pay with bills or coins.

“It would make it difficult for me to shop, because I like to use cash and whatever is in the bank is savings,” said Victor Mendoza of Redding.

Luis Del la Torre runs Los Gordos in Redding. He thinks it should be up to the customers to decide how they pay.

“It's a freedom of choice, people should be able to pay cash or credit card,” said De la Torrea.
“Honestly I prefer cash because credit cards are making tons of money out of my pocket.”

People in Redding say, businesses should keep both options of payment open.
