Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Charitable Games Act. Requires a licensee seeking to sponsor more than 4 charitable game nights per year to pay an additional nonrefundable fee of $50 for each additional night to the Department of Revenue at least 30 days prior to the night or nights the licensee wishes to conduct such games. Prohibits a licensee from sponsoring more than 12 charitable game nights per year. Removes provisions that provide that persons in charge of the necessary day-to-day operations of the charitable games have not participated in the operation of more than 12 charitable games and those persons have not received compensation for participating in the operation of the games. Prohibits the Department from issuing a license permitting a person, firm, or corporation to sponsor a charitable games night if the premises for the conduct of the charitable games has been previously used for 48 (instead of 12) charitable games nights during the previous 12 months. Requires the Department to license providers of charitable games at a nonrefundable biennial fee of $400 (instead of an annual fee of $50 or a nonrefundable triennial license fee of $150). Provides that each providers' license is valid for 2 years (instead of one year or 3 years for a triennial license). Provides that the Department shall receive a fee of $200 for a one year extension. Allows a licensee who conducts charitable games on its own premises to obtain a providers' license to allow the licensee to provide its premises to another licensee for the conducting of an additional 12 (instead of 4) charitable games events. Provides that the maximum number of charitable games events that may be held at any one premises is limited to 48 (instead of 12) charitable games events per calendar year. Removes provisions that provide that: no person except a bona fide member or employee of the sponsoring organization may participate in the management or operation of the game; no person may receive any compensation from any source for participating in the operation of the game; and no employee, owner, or officer of a consultant service hired by a licensed organization to perform services at the event may participate in the operation of the games.
