HB 507 - Current law defines "excursion gambling boat" as a boat, ferry, or other floating facility. This act modifies such definition to include nonfloating facilities, which are defined as any structure within 1,000 feet of the Missouri or Mississippi rivers that contains at least 2,000 gallons of water beneath or inside the facility. (Section 313.800)
This act also modifies current law relating to the licensure of excursion gambling boats to allow for nonfloating facilities. (Section 313.805)
This act is identical to SB 506 (2021) and to provisions contained in CCS#2/HCS/SS/SCS/SB 26 (2021), HCS/SS/SB 212 (2021), and HCS/SS/SB 283 (2021).
