|Subject:||Tavern Gaming Legislation Revisions|
|In the near future, I plan on introducing legislation that will revise problems that were overlooked in the recently passed Tavern Gaming Legislation.
My legislation will make changes to Act 90, that was passed by the Senate and House in November, 2013. Amending the act of December 19, 1988 (P.L.1262, No.156), entitled, as amended, "An act providing for the licensing of eligible organizations to conduct games of chance, for the licensing of persons to distribute games of chance, for the registration of manufacturers of games of chance, and for suspensions and revocations of licenses and permits; requiring records; providing for local referendum by electorate; and prescribing penalties," further providing for definitions, for games of chance permitted, for distributor licenses, for major league sports drawing, for club licensee, for distribution of proceeds, for records and for raffle tickets; providing for background checks; further providing for enforcement; providing for tavern gaming and for a host municipality tavern games tax; establishing the Host Municipality Tavern Games Local Share Account; providing for a report of the Legislative Budget and Finance Committee; and making an editorial change.
My legislation will specifically focus on the following:
I believe this legislation will be beneficial to our small hard working businesses, beneficial to the charities that are supported by these businesses, and will produce the projected revenue from tavern games for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Please join me in cosponsoring this important piece of legislation.
Introduced as SB1412
