Charitable Gaming Board; powers and duties. Vests the Charitable Gaming Board with control of all charitable gaming in the Commonwealth and sets out the powers and duties of the Board. Currently the control of charitable gaming is vested in the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services. The bill establishes the Charitable Gaming Fund as a special fund for the administration of charitable gaming to be used solely for administering and enforcing charitable gaming laws and Board regulations, educating charitable organizations and players, and promoting charitable gaming in Virginia. The bill also (i) authorizes the Board to investigate any gaming activity not specifically authorized by law or Board regulations, including illegal gambling as defined by 18.2-325; (ii) authorizes the Board to enter into an agreement with the Department of State Police to provide law-enforcement officers employed by the Department to be assigned to investigate alleged violations of charitable gaming laws and illegal gambling as defined by 18.2-325; and (iii) requires the Board to revise the fees levied by it for issuing charitable gaming permits and supplier registrations, or renewal thereof, so that the fees are sufficient to cover expenses but not excessive. The bill contains technical amendments. Read the Bill »
