The Prepaid Entertainment Contract Act is not complex in its drafting and should be readily understandable by the consumer in informing him of his rights under a future service contract. There are, however, several aspects of PECA which will require clarification. First, the definition of "first service ' will present problems in construction if a practical application of the Act is to be realized. Second, the extent to which a violation of this Act constitutes a per se deceptive act under the Consumer Sales Practices Act may require interpretation.' Third, a proposed Trade Regulation Rule by the Federal Trade Commission concerning health spas is presently pending; if passed, the problem of possible federal preemption will have to be dealt with.
