H 1064 (2019-2020) GSC CLARIFYING BINGO LICENSE STATUTE. Filed May 8 2020, AN ACT TO CLARIFY THE BINGO LICENSE STATUTE, AS RECOMMENDED BY THE GENERAL STATUTES COMMISSION, AND TO MAKE ADDITIONAL TECHNICAL CORRECTIONS AND TO AMEND THE RULES OF CIVIL PROCEDURE AND THE CRIMINAL PROCEDURE ACT CONCERNING THE GRANTING OF CONTINUANCES FOR GOOD CAUSE ON ACCOUNT OF SERVICE ON A STATE BOARD, COMMISSION, OR AUTHORITY AS AN APPOINTEE OF THE GOVERNOR, LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR, OR GENERAL ASSEMBLY.

Amends GS 14-309.7, which sets forth the licensing procedure for bingo game operation. Clarifies that all license applications must contain the names and addresses of each member of the special committee described in GS 14-309.10, which requires bingo games to be the direct responsibility of, and controlled by, a special committee selected by the governing body of the exempt organization (currently, does not offer an explanation of the special committee contact requirement). Specifies that an organization using a leased premises for bingo games must occupy and use the leased premises for purposes other than bingo for at least six months before the first game (currently, does not specify that this requirement applies to the first game only). Concerning limited occasion permits, authorizes the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI), which is the licensing agency for bingo game licensees, to require any information necessary to determine compliance with Part 2, Bingo and Raffles, of Article 37 (currently, authorizes requiring any information reasonable and necessary to determine compliance). Makes identical change concerning the information required to be reported following the game for which a limited occasion permit is issued. Clarifies that the SBI is restricted to requiring no more information for a limited occasion permit than that required by statute for a bingo game license. Additionally, makes clarifying, technical, and organizational changes throughout.

Applies to applications submitted on or after October 1, 2020.
