Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2021 - 2022 Regular Session


Posted: December 1, 2020 10:23 AM
From: Senator Daniel Laughlin
To: All Senate members
Subject: 50/50 Split for Club Licensees under Local Option Small Games of Chance Act

In the near future, I plan to re-introduce Senate Bill 965 of last session to amend the Local Option Small Games of Chance Act to allow club licensees to retain 50 percent of their proceeds from small games of chance while maintaining charitable donation requirements for the other 50 percent.

Originally, clubs were only allowed to keep 30 percent of their proceeds, and in 2013, that number was increased to 40 percent. However, with the expanding gaming landscape in Pennsylvania, the purpose of this legislation is to allow our club licensees the opportunity to remain viable competitors. The intention is not to take away from the communities they serve but rather to give the club licensees the tools to thrive so they are able to continue helping their communities through charitable giving.

Introduced as SB643
