DIGEST OF HB 1286 (Updated April 28, 2009 3:06 pm - DI 92)


Gaming. Extends the period in which an instant prize may be claimed from 60 to 180 days after the end of the lottery game. Requires the lottery commission to deduct from a lottery prize the amounts intercepted by law for payment to the state and to pay the balance of the prize to the prize winner. (Current law requires the lottery commission to transfer the prize to the auditor of state, who makes the deduction and pays the balance to the prize winner.) Provides that the right to a prize in the state lottery is not considered an account for purposes of the Uniform Commercial Code. (This provision eliminates a conflict between the lottery law, which does not permit the right to a prize to be assigned, and the Uniform Commercial Code, which does.) Specifies the manner in which qualified drawings may be conducted. Amends the definition of "qualified organization" to enable an organization that reorganizes or changes its name to obtain, if certain conditions are met, a charity gaming license under the new name. Specifies when a festival worker may participate as a player in gaming activity offered at the festival. Provides that identifying information of an operator or a worker submitted to the gaming commission on an application for a license is confidential. Provides that only fraternal and veteran organizations may apply for an annual charity game night license. Specifies that a facility or location may not be used or rented for purposes of conducting an annual charity game night event on more than three calendar days per calendar week. Provides for a new retailer's endorsement renewal fee schedule and requires that the fee be submitted with the renewal form.
