Agency Request Legislation 2022
Our priority for 2022 agency request legislation is concerning bingo activities. SB 5549 looks to:
- Amend types of nonprofit organizations qualified to engage in certain types of bingo actvities, and
- Increase the number of occurences for unlicensed bingo actvities from two per year to twelve per year.
This proposal was approved for filing as agency request legislation during the 2021 legislation session, however, was withdrawn at the request of the Governor's Office due to COVID-19 restrictions.
A virtual meeting was held with stakeholders on June 24, 2020 to discuss potential agency request legislation. Staff presented a summary of stakeholder comments to our commissioners at the agency's July 17, 2020 public meeting. A virtual meeting was held on July 15, 2021 to discuss potential agency request legislation. Staff presented feedback from that meeting to our commissioners at their August 12, 2021 public meeting.
