        Amends the Riverboat Gambling Act.  Permits riverboat gambling on      
   permanently  moored  barges.   Permits  dockside   gambling   if   the      
   municipality  or  county submits to the voters the question of whether      
   dockside gambling should be allowed in  the  municipality  or  county.      
   Allows  a  licensee  that  receives  Board  permission  to  operate  a      
   secondary  home  dock location and move up to two-thirds of its gaming      
   positions to that location if the licensee meets certain requirements.      
   Deletes provision that allows gambling excursion cruises only when the      
   navigable stream for which the riverboat  is  licensed  is  navigable.      
   Changes the license renewal period to 4 years.  Effective immediately.      
          HOME RULE NOTE                                                       
          HB 607 does not preempt home rule authority.                         
          STATE MANDATES FISCAL NOTE                                           
          In the opinion of DCCA, HB 607 fails to create a State mandate       
          under the State Mandates Act.                                        
          FISCAL NOTE (Ill. Gaming Board)                                      
          Agency operating expenses will likely increase as a result of        
          having to oversee aditional docksites. Overall, an increase of       
          three new sites would likely increase operating expenses of IGB      
          by about 25 percent, (about $3 million annually).                    
          STATE DEBT IMPACT NOTE                                               
          HB 607 would not impact State Debt.
