This Bill implements certain recommendations of the Lottery & Gaming Study Commission adopted on January 22, 2015 but not implemented by legislation in 2015. The Bill intends for the State to continue to benefit from video lottery proceeds, allows for continued employment at the State’s three video lottery facilities, and allows for the reinvestment of capital in those facilities to enable them to compete and remain vibrant tourism enterprises for the State. The Bill also provides for an expansion of the Internet lottery to include sports betting and allows video lottery agents to participate in all proceeds from the Internet lottery once administrative and vendor costs are paid. Effective July 1, 2016, the table game license fee is eliminated; and effective January 1, 2017 and January 1, 2018, the State’s share of gross table game revenues is revised to 20% and 15%, respectively. Video lottery agents shall receive certain credits for marketing expenditures and capital expenditures to be phased in over the next four fiscal years.
