An Act To Amend the Laws Governing Beano
Sec. 1. 17 MRSA §313-C, sub-§1, as enacted by PL 2017, c. 284, Pt. JJJJJ, §7, is amended to read:
The Gambling Control Unit may accept a registration submitted by an organization described in paragraph C that has been in existence for less than 2 years in the State if the organization has a charter from a national organization.
This bill removes the requirement that beano conducted by organizations such as volunteer fire departments, agricultural fair associations and nonprofit, charitable, educational, political, civic, recreational, fraternal, patriotic, religious or veterans organizations be conducted by members of those organizations and instead requires that beano conducted by these organizations be conducted in the presence of at least one member of the organization.
