Agency Request Legislation 2022

Our priority for 2022 agency request legislation is concerning bingo activities. SB 5549 looks to:

  • Amend types of nonprofit organizations qualified to engage in certain types of bingo activities, and
  • Increase the number of occurrences for unlicensed bingo activities from two per year to twelve per year.

This proposal was approved for filing as agency request legislation during the 2021 legislation session, however, was withdrawn at the request of the Governor's Office due to COVID-19 restrictions. 

Stakeholder Outreach

A virtual meeting was held with stakeholders on June 24, 2020, to discuss potential agency request legislation.
