Lawmakers Vote To Tighten Rules On Charity Gambling
The House and Senate have voted to tighten rules for table games operated in the name of New Hampshire charities.
Lawmakers voted Wednesday to send the governor a bill establishing new financial record-keeping and reporting requirements for charities and deeper background investigations by the attorney general.
The bill clarifies the definition of so-called redemption slot machines and the Racing and Charitable Gaming Commission's enforcement authority over them.
The measure also establishes a study commission to determine the most appropriate system to make sure gambling helps charities raise the money they need to survive.
