	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   SB 374, Strickland. Gambling control: key employee licenses.
   The Gambling Control Act provides for the licensure of certain
individuals and establishments involved in various gambling
activities, and for the regulation of those activities, by the
California Gambling Control Commission. Existing law requires certain
persons employed in the operation of a gambling enterprise, known as
key employees, to apply for and obtain a key employee license. A key
employee license entitles the holder to work in any key employee
position at any gambling establishment, provided that the key
employee terminates employment with one gambling establishment before
commencing work for another. Existing law requires the commission to
establish a program for portable personal licenses for key
employees, to be implemented on or before July 1, 2008.
   This bill would authorize a key employee with a valid personal
portable license to work as a key employee in any key employee
position in more than one gambling establishment.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  SECTION 1.  Section 19854 of the Business and Professions Code is
amended to read:
   19854.  (a) Every key employee shall apply for and obtain a key
employee license.
   (b) No person may be issued a key employee license unless the
person would qualify for a state gambling license.
   (c) (1) Except as provided in paragraph (2), a key employee
license shall entitle the holder to work as a key employee in any key
employee position at any gambling establishment, provided that the
key employee terminates employment with one gambling establishment
before commencing work for another.
   (2) Notwithstanding paragraph (1), a key employee with a valid
personal portable license may work as a key employee in any key
employee position in more than one gambling establishment.
   (d) The commission shall establish a program for portable personal
licenses for key employees, as well as a process by which valid key
employee licenses then in effect shall be converted to personal
portable licenses. The commission may, as part of that process,
establish a fee to be paid by a key employee when seeking a personal
portable license. The commission shall seek to implement the
requirements imposed by this subdivision on or before July 1, 2008.
