Potential current biennium revenue increase - Other Special Revenue Funds
Fiscal Detail and Notes
This bill authorizes the Gambling Control Unit (GCU) to accept a once-a-year game night registration from eligible organizations, registered political party committees, political action committees or ballot question committees. The bill requires that these organizations report all proceeds received from the game night to the Commission on Governmental Ethics and Election Practices. These once-a-year gaming night registrations will potentially increase Other Special Revenue Funds revenue to the GCU. If the number of applicants for registrations is significant, the additional administrative and compliance activities associated with the new registrations may increase the workload on the staff of the GCU. Any such increase is expected to be gradual and any additional staffing for the GCU may need to be addressed in future budgets.
