Summary of the Introduced Bill

HB 1893 -- Gaming Funds

Sponsor:  Kelly

Currently, the laws regarding the distribution of gaming funds
contain provisions that govern the administration of early
childhood education and veterans' programs which are supported by
gaming moneys.  This bill repeals and re-enacts those provisions
with no changes, placing them in the statutes that apply to
veterans (Chapter 42, RSMo) and to education (Chapter 161).  An
obsolete subsection that describes how distributions were made in
Fiscal Year 1998 and earlier is also repealed.

Beginning in Fiscal Year 2011, veterans' programs will receive an
additional $500,000 per year if the Gaming Commission Fund
reaches the 2009 appropriation level for early childhood
education.  Once the $500,000 is distributed to the Veterans'
Commission Capital Improvement Trust Fund, additional funds will
be deposited into the Early Childhood Development Education and
Care Fund.
