Business' with public relation problems have to take a monetary hit at some point in the game. I'm trying to ascertain when exactly this would take effect, and my best guess is during the Consumer phase when an Industry card pertaining to the business is revealed and a law is currently on the books which would affect the business with the pr problem. Is this correct? Thanks - Bob

Businesses with PR problems will be negatively impacted by legislation. Some legislation (like Disaster Fines and Workplace Violation Fines) will immediately make businesses with PR problems pay when the president passes it. Other legislation (Living Wages, Public Health Fees, Wilderness Protection, Cap and Trade) make businesses with PR problems pay or receive less money when a relevant consumer card comes up.

Note that businesses with PR problems don't take a monetary hit in every game! Sometimes the negative legislation never comes up, and sometimes the president won't pass it even when it does come up (like if the president has a business with a PR problem himself).
