Charitable gaming; special permit for the play of electronic versions of instant bingo, pull tabs, or seal cards on certain premises. Creates a special permit that shall be granted to a qualified organization that has already received a general permit for the conduct of charitable gaming from the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services to allow such organization to place Department-approved electronic versions of instant bingo, pull tabs, or seal cards on the licensed premises of an entity licensed to sell alcoholic beverages for on-premises consumption with the consent of such licensee. The bill also exempts qualified organizations that are granted such a special permit from certain requirements relating to (i) limits on the number of organizations for which a person may manage, operate, or conduct charitable games; (ii) prohibitions on providing compensation or any other remuneration to persons for organizing, managing, or conducting charitable games; or (iii) the use of proceeds derived from the conduct of charitable games, as those requirements relate to the management, operation, or conduct of charitable games pursuant to such special permit.
