Charity Gaming Study Committee to Hear Testimony on Licensing and Regulation
Posted in Government

The Indiana General Assembly’s Charity Gaming Study Committee has announced that it will be meeting on October 18 and October 25 to conduct hearings on topics assigned to it by the Legislative Council. The meeting on the 18th will include a charity gaming overview presentation by the Indiana Gaming Commission.

The Committee will also hear testimony and consider issues related to the licensing and regulating of national organizations and their affiliates.  It is anticipated that the committee will thoroughly examine a proposal to change the status quo by issuing one license to a single parent organization that will be responsible for the oversight and accounting of all gaming activities conducted by its Indiana affiliates/chapters. The meeting on the 25th will include, among other things, discussion about new charity gaming technology. Testimony is expected to include information relating to advanced electronic pull-tab machines that resemble slot machines.  Such devices are not presently licensed for charity gaming play in Indiana. Both meetings are scheduled start at 1:30 p.m. and be held in Room 431 of the Indiana Statehouse.
