Description

Charitable gaming; exemptions from certain requirements for specified organizations. Exempts qualified organizations that reasonably expect, on the basis of prior charitable gaming annual results or any other quantifiable method, to realize gross receipts of $15,000 or less from all charitable gaming other than raffles, conducted on a total of no more than seven days per calendar year, from the requirements to (i) notify the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (the Department) of their intention to conduct such charitable gaming or (ii) comply with the regulations of the Charitable Gaming Board. Under current law, only qualified organizations that reasonably expect to realize gross receipts of $40,000 or less from raffles in any 12-month period are exempt from these requirements. The bill provides that any qualified organization may sell instant bingo, pull tabs, or seal cards that are dispensed by mechanical equipment only, provided that the sale is limited to two events of no more than 14 days each per calendar year. Under current law, only athletic associations or booster clubs or band booster clubs may sell instant bingo, pull tabs, or seal cards at a single event in a calendar year. Finally, the bill prohibits the Department from requiring a qualified organization that realizes annual gross receipts of $15,000 or less to file a report of its receipts and disbursements.
