House of Representatives
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: July 5, 2022 09:34 AM
From: Representative Seth M. Grove
To: All House members
Subject: Repeal diesel gallonage requirement under VGT law
In the near future, I will be introducing legislation to eliminate the 50,000 gallons of diesel/biodiesel fuel requirement under the video gaming terminal law in Title 4.  Simply, linking a licensee to a commodity makes no sense.  Think of it this way, would the commonwealth link a tavern license to how many wings a tavern sells per month?  Or linking a dentist license based on how many root canals a dentist performs per month?  Of course not.

Linking any license to a commodity is purely bad public policy.

I hope you will join in ending this poor linkage between receiving a state license and a commodity which is driven by international economics.

Introduced as HB2743
