Title: Gambling Restrictions

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a joint resolution that amends the state constitution to prohibit any form of gambling unless it is ratified by a majority vote in the next statewide general election, and approved at an election in the borough or city where the gambling will occur.

Highlights:
- Specifies that this resolution does not affect any form of gambling that is legally sanctioned by the state prior to its ratification (Sec. 1). - Specifies that this resolution does not affect the ability of the legislature to authorize or regulate nonprofit gambling (Sec. 1). - This is a substitute resolution sponsored by the House Finance Committee.
Note:

NOTE: THIS IS A SUBSTITUTE BILL, MEANING THE LANGUAGE OF THE ORIGINAL BILL HAS BEEN REPLACED. THE DEGREE TO WHICH THE SUBSTITUTE BILL TEXT DIFFERS FROM THE PREVIOUS VERSION OF THE TEXT CAN VARY GREATLY.

NOTE: AN AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION REQUIRES TWO-THIRDS APPROVAL IN EACH CHAMBER FOR PASSAGE. IT MUST THEN BE APPROVED BY A MAJORITY OF CITIZENS VOTING IN THE NEXT ELECTION TO BE ENACTED.
