|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
