DIGEST OF HB1224 (Updated February 27, 2008 2:04 pm - DI 84)


Gaming. Voids certain rules adopted by the Indiana gaming commission (IGC) concerning the transfer of ownership interests in riverboat owner's licenses. Prohibits the Indiana horse racing commission and the IGC from: (1) imposing fees that are not authorized by statute upon the parties to a transfer of ownership interests; and (2) making the approval of a proposed transfer of ownership interests contingent upon the payment of any amount not authorized by statute. Requires licensed owners, operating agents, and applicants for owner's licenses and operating agent contracts to submit a proposed power of attorney to the gaming commission. Provides that the power of attorney must designate a trustee to operate the principal's riverboat on behalf of the principal if certain events occur. Provides that the gaming commission must approve the trustee and the powers delegated to the trustee in the power of attorney. Specifies the conditions under which the trustee may conduct gambling operations on a riverboat. Repeals the 2005 noncode provision. Provides that all information maintained by the IGC concerning an individual who holds a riverboat gambling or slot machine facility occupational license is confidential for purposes of the public records law and may be released by the commission only for law enforcement purposes or to a state or local public agency. Provides that certain information held by the IGC concerning an applicant for a license under the slot machine facility law is confidential. (The introduced version of this bill was prepared by the administrative rules oversight committee.)
