           SUBJECT  :    Gaming:  licenses

           SOURCE  :     Author


           DIGEST  :    This bill extends, from 30 to 45 days, the time after  
          receipt of an order by the Gambling Control Commission  
          (Commission) within which a person must apply for a gambling  
          license or a finding of suitability.

           ANALYSIS  :    

          Existing law:

          1.Requires every person who is required to hold a state gambling  
            license to obtain the license prior to engaging in the  
            activity or occupying the position with respect to which the  
            license is required, except as specified.

          2.Requires every person who, by order of the Commission, is  
            required to apply for a gambling license or a finding of  
                                                                CONTINUED





                                                                     SB 472
                                                                     Page  
          2

            suitability to file an application within 30 calendar days  
            after receipt of the order.

          This bill extends, from 30 to 45 days, the time after receipt of  
          an order by the Commission within which a person must apply for  
          a gambling license or a finding of suitability.

           Comments

           According to the author, "Once an individual or entity is  
          determined by the CA Gaming Commission to be required to obtain  
          a gaming license, with all required background information,  
          within 30 days.  Depending on the nature of the person/entity  
          applying, the amount of information required to be submitted may  
          be very substantial, require significant research, and consist  
          of hundreds of pages.  This bill extends the time period in  
          order for more comprehensive efforts to be accomplished as part  
          of submitting the application."
           
          Prior Legislation
           
          AB 777 (Hall, 2011) would have required every person who is  
          required to hold a state gaming license to obtain the license  
          before engaging in the activity or occupying the position with  
          respect to which the license is required.  The bill died in the  
          Senate Governmental Organization Committee.
