Prepared By: Stephanie James, Senate Counsel (651/296-0103)

In 2015, the legislature added raffle boards to games regulated under the charitable gaming laws. (Laws 2015, chapter 45.)  HF3281 (SF2742) makes several conforming changes to the charitable gaming statutes to treat raffle boards like other gambling devices, such as pull-tabs,  tipboards, and paddle tickets.

Section 1 [Unaccounted Games] adds raffle boards to the list of devices that, if not accounted for, a licensed distributor must report to the commissioner of gambling control or remit a tax.

Section 2 [Untaxed gambling product] adds raffle boards to the list of devices for which a person must pay a penalty tax if the person has not paid a tax required to possess the device.

Section 3 [Contraband defined] adds raffle boards to the list of devices that are contraband unless certain requirements are met.

Section 4 [Prohibition against possession] adds raffle boards to the list of devices that it is a crime to  possess unless certain requirements are met. Unauthorized possession is a misdemeanor.

Section 5 [False information] adds raffle boards to the list of devices for which a person is guilty of a felony for providing particular false information.

Section 6 [Transporting unstamped deals] adds raffle boards to the list of devices that cannot be transported unless certain requirements are met.   Unauthorized transportation is a gross misdemeanor
