Agency Decision Summary

The Charitable Gaming Board (Board) voted to take no action on the petitioner’s request for rulemaking for the following reason:

In 2018, the Board created a workgroup to evaluate use of proceeds and to consider whether changes to the current structure are appropriate and necessary. It is premature for the Board to interject itself into this evaluation until the workgroup has completed its work. Though the Board voted to take no action on the petition, the workgroup will consider the specific idea brought forth in the petition for rulemaking as it deliberates over use of proceeds.
