SECTION 195-Q
Bell jar compliance and enforcement
General Municipal (GMU) CHAPTER 24, ARTICLE 9-A
§ 195-q. Bell jar compliance and enforcement. In the case of bell
jars, the licensee, upon filing financial statements of bell jar
operations, shall also tender to the board a sum in the amount of five
percent of the net proceeds as defined in this paragraph, from the sale
of bell jar tickets, seal cards, merchandise board, and coin boards, if
any, for that portion of license period covered by such statement. For
the purposes of this section, "net proceeds" shall mean the difference
between the ideal handle from the sale of bell jar tickets, seal cards,
merchandise boards, and coin boards less the amount of money paid out in
prizes and less the purchase price of the bell jar deal, seal card deal,
merchandise board deal, or coin board deal. Additionally, a credit shall
be permitted against the net proceeds fee tendered to the board for
unsold tickets of the bell jar deal as long as the unsold tickets have
the same serial number as the tickets for which the fee is rendered.
Such unsold tickets must be kept on file by the selling organization for
inspection by the board for a period of one year following the date upon
which the relevant financial statement was received by the board.

1. One-half of one percent of such fee received from authorized
volunteer fire companies shall be paid to the New York state emergency
services revolving loan account established pursuant to section
ninety-seven-pp of the state finance law.

2. The state gaming commission shall submit to the director of the
division of the budget an annual plan that details the amount of money
the state gaming commission deems necessary to maintain operations,
compliance and enforcement of the provisions of this article and the
collection of the license fee authorized by this section. Contingent
upon the approval of the director of the division of the budget, the
state gaming commission shall pay into an account, to be known as the
bell jar collection account, under the joint custody of the comptroller
and the state gaming commission, the total amount of license fees
collected pursuant to this section. With the approval of the director of
the division of the budget, monies to be utilized to maintain the
operations necessary to enforce the provisions of this article and the
collection of the license fee imposed by this section shall be paid out
of such account on the audit and warrant of the comptroller on vouchers
certified or approved by the director of the division of the budget or
his or her duly designated official. Those monies that are not utilized
to maintain operations necessary to enforce the provisions of this
article and the collection of the license fee authorized by this section
shall be paid out of such amount on the audit and warrant of the state
comptroller and shall be credited to the general fund.
