BILL NUMBER:S3792

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the racing, pari-mutuel wagering and
breeding law and the penal law, in relation to the transportation and
possession of a gambling device

PURPOSE: This bill would allow the transportation and possession of
gambling devices under certain circumstances.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1: Amends section 104 of the Racing, Pari-Mutuel Wagering and
Breeding Law by adding a new subdivision 21 to allow the
transportation and possession of a gambling device for the purposes of
exhibition, marketing, and product development.

Section 2: Amends section 225.30 of the Penal Law by adding a new
subdivision e which provides that transportation and possession of a
gambling device shall not be unlawful where such gambling device was
transported into New York pursuant to paragraph 21 of section 104 of
the Racing, Pari-Mutuel Wagering and Breeding Law.

Section 3: Effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: Chapter 321 of the Laws of 2010 amended the penal law
to affirmatively state that mere repair, assembly and/or transport of
gambling devices is not a crime as long as it is for use in a lawful
jurisdiction and not for unlawful use in New York. These provisions
included transportation and possession of a slot machine for the
purposes of product development. This legislation would expand the
authorization to allow manufacturers to market and exhibit gambling
devices in New York.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: New bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately; provided
however that section one of this act shall take effect on the same
date and in the same manner as section 1 of part A of chapter 60 of
the laws of 2012, takes effect.
