Amending the act of June 13, 2008 (P.L.182, No.27), entitled "An

14

the following:

[(11)  Unless otherwise increased under this paragraph,

17

25% of the gaming floor at a licensed facility. No earlier

18

than 90 days following the effective date of this section or

19

the date of commencement of slot machine operations at a

 


1

licensed facility, whichever is later, a licensed facility

2

shall request a report from the Department of Revenue that

3

analyzes the gross terminal revenue per slot machine unit in

4

operation at the licensed facility within the 90-day period

5

preceding the request. If the report shows that the average

6

gross terminal revenue per slot machine unit in the

7

designated smoking area equals or exceeds the average gross

8

terminal revenue per slot machine unit in the designated

9

nonsmoking area, the licensed facility may increase the

10

designated smoking area of the gaming floor in proportion to

11

the percentage difference in revenue. A licensed facility may

12

request this report from the Department of Revenue on a

13

quarterly basis and may increase the designated smoking area

14

of the gaming floor accordingly. At no time may the

15

designated smoking area exceed 50% of the gaming floor. The

16

board shall have jurisdiction to verify the gross terminal

17

revenues included in the report to ensure compliance with the

18

requirements under this paragraph. Movement of the licensed

19

facility from a temporary facility to a permanent facility

20

shall not require the licensed facility to revert to the

21

minimum percentage set forth under this paragraph.]
