S T A T E O F N E W Y O R K ________________________________________________________________________ 6284 2019-2020 Regular Sessions I N S E N A T E June 3, 2019 ___________ Introduced by Sen. ADDABBO -- read twice and ordered printed, and when printed to be committed to the Committee on Rules AN ACT to amend the general municipal law, in relation to electronic bell jar games THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND ASSEM- BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS: Section 1. Legislative findings and purpose. 1. The legislature here- by finds that: (a) bell jar games are a popular and profitable fundraising mechanism for bona fide not-for-profit organizations across the state, generating millions of dollars in net revenues for charitable purposes every year; (b) authorized organizations that offer bell jars and other games of chance must meet strict standards established by the New York state general municipal law and the New York state gaming commission, includ- ing receiving a license to conduct charitable gaming activities; and (c) while other types of gaming in New York state have continued to expand and improve, the operation of charitable gaming activities has largely remained the same over the last several decades. 2. For the aforementioned reasons, the legislature hereby declares that authorized organizations licensed by the New York state gaming commission to conduct charitable gaming would greatly benefit from the ability to operate electronic bell jar vending machines, which display and dispense pre-printed bell jar tickets that have predetermined winners and predetermined values for prizes, in order to help increase charitable gaming profits across the state and attract more members to join such organizations. § 2. Subdivision 3-a of section 186 of the general municipal law, as amended by chapter 531 of the laws of 2011, is amended to read as follows: 3-a. "Bell jars" shall mean and include those games in which a partic- ipant shall draw a card from a jar, vending machine, INCLUDING AN ELEC- EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets [ ] is old law to be omitted.
