BILL NUMBER:S170 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general municipal law, in relation to establishing age sixteen as the minimum age for assisting in the conduct of any game of bingo PURPOSE: To allow individuals age sixteen and seventeen to assist in the conducting of bingo games. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: This bill amends section 486 of the general municipal law to allow individuals age sixteen and seventeen to assist in bingo games. JUSTIFICATION: This legislation would allow individuals who are sixteen and seventeen to assist in conducting bingo games. This legislation would in no way allow them to run games. But this legislation would expand the areas they can work in. Many volunteer organizations use younger members at bingo fund raising events to help get them involved in the organization. Under current law, there is an extremely limited scope of what these younger members can legally do. This legislation would still prevent them from conducting bingo games, but it would expand their ability to do more than for example working the food counter.
