Bill Summary

Sections 3, 4, and 5 of the bill require applicants for manufacturers', suppliers', and agents' licenses to disclose to the secretary of state (licensing authority) whether those applicants or any of their owners, officers, directors, members, or partners have had gaming licenses suspended or revoked in any other jurisdiction. Sections 6 and 7 authorize the licensing authority to approve additional types of equipment that players may use, including certain electronic devices that reveal the winning or nonwinning status of tickets in pull tab games, and clarifies that these devices are not defined as slot machines or other prohibited devices. Section 1 amends existing definitions accordingly, and section 2 removes a prohibition on the charging of license fees for the equipment by the licensing authority.
