HB 1092 -- Raffles and Sweepstakes

Sponsor:  Scheve

This bill establishes regulations for raffles and sweepstakes.
In its main provisions, the bill:

(1)  Allows qualifying charitable and religious organizations to
conduct raffles or sweepstakes without a license, as long as the
prize values do not exceed the limit per calendar year.  Raffles
and sweepstakes exceeding the limit require a license;

(2)  Allows a qualifying charitable or religious organization to
conduct multiple raffles and sweepstakes once per calendar year
in conjunction with a fair or carnival if the value of all
prizes for the organization's raffles and sweepstakes for the
calendar year does not exceed the limit;

(3)  Outlines license application requirements, establishes
certain bookkeeping and recordkeeping requirements, and requires
Missouri Gaming Commission access to books, records, and
premises;

(4)  Requires that all revenue from the raffles and sweepstakes
be devoted solely to the religious or charitable purpose for
which the organization is recognized as such;

(5)  Excludes certain persons and organizations from the
management, conduct, or operation of any raffle or sweepstakes;

(6)  Establishes requirements for raffle and sweepstakes
licensees, such as reporting to the commission changes to
application information within 30 days and filing with the
commission a statement of revenue and expenses by March 1 of
each year;

(7)  Requires licensees to submit to the commission the name and
tax identification number of each supplier used for raffles and
sweepstakes supplies and prior to conducting a raffle or
sweepstakes, to provide 10 days' notice to the commission, and
submit an event fee of up to $25, as determined by the
commission;

(8)  Restricts the conduct of raffles and sweepstakes by
licensees, including that only bona fide members for at least 6
months are permitted to be involved in the management of raffles
or sweepstakes;

(9)  Makes it a misdemeanor to violate the bill's provisions,
and authorizes the commission to fine a violator in an amount
not more than 3 times the amount of the proceeds of the raffle
or sweepstakes directly connected to the violation;

(10)  Outlines grounds for discipline by the commission; and

(11)  Makes it a class D felony to counterfeit any raffle or
sweepstakes ticket with the intent to defraud.
