HB 1127-FN FISCAL NOTE

AN ACT relative to fees for certain charitable gaming licenses.

FISCAL IMPACT:

    The Racing and Charitable Gaming Commission states this bill, as introduced, will increase state education trust fund revenue by $3,663,000 in FY 2015, and decrease state education trust fund revenue by $37,000 in FY 2016, and each year thereafter. There is no impact on county and local revenue, or state, county and local expenditures.

METHODOLOGY:

The Racing and Charitable Gaming Commission states this bill establishes a 5-year primary game operator license for a fee of $50,000. The primary game operator license fee, established in rule, is $500 each year. The Commission states there are 74 licensed primary game operators and the Commission assumes the same operators will pay the increased fee. Based on the assumption that the number of primary game operators will remain at 74, state education trust fund revenue will increase by $3,663,000 (($50,000 proposed license fee *74 primary operators) – ($500 current license fee * 74 primary operators)) in the first year and a decrease by $37,000 ($500 current license fee * 74 primary operators) for the next four years. The Commission states this bill will have no impact on state expenditures.
