2017 Senate Bill 35: Regulate the “millionaire party” business
Introduced by Sen. Rick Jones (R) on January 18, 2017 To revise the law governing charitable “millionaire party” gambling events that include casino games, in a manner that accommodates charities contracting-out operation of these fundraising events to a “charitable gaming service” that operates them for multiple charities at a single location, one event after another. The bill would establish a licensing regime covering both the charities and the companies that provide the gambling service, which would recognize a system that has evolved in which, on most days of the week, a person can go to a single location to gamble on casino-like games, with the proceeds going to a different charitable organization each day (or during different hours of the same day).   Official Text and Analysis.
Referred to the Senate Regulatory Reform Committee on January 18, 2017
Reported in the Senate on February 2, 2017 With the recommendation that the substitute (S-1) be adopted and that the bill then pass.
Passed 34 to 3 in the Senate on February 9, 2017.
