Current Bill Summary

SB 888 - Under this act, the Conservation Commission is prohibited from selling, leasing or conveying property owned by the Department of Conservation to any gaming facility.

The act also places a gambling boat licensee's bond or other form of surety, and license renewal, at risk if an expansion or modification of the boat, which has been approved by the Missouri Gaming Commission, is not completed within two years of the date of approval.

This act makes it a crime to make a false statement or submit a false application to the Missouri Gaming Commission. In such a case, the Commission could impose any of the penalties otherwise authorized for violations and, if charged in court, a person could be found guilty of a Class D felony (1-5 years).

The act also prohibits title lenders and small loan companies from establishing a business within five miles of an excursion gambling boat dock or facility after the effective date of this act.

This act is substantially similar to SB 168 (1999).

This act has an emergency clause for certain sections.
