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.
