An Act To Amend the Laws Governing the Operation of Tournament Games by Charitable Organizations
Sec. 1. 17 MRSA §1836, sub-§2-A is enacted to read:
Sec. 2. 17 MRSA §1836, sub-§4, as amended by PL 2011, c. 325, §4, is further amended to read:
This bill amends the laws governing the operation of tournament games by charitable organizations. Current law requires that only members of the organization may conduct tournament games. This bill allows the charitable organization to hire nonmembers to conduct the tournament games. Compensation paid to nonmembers for conducting a tournament game is limited to 20% of the gross revenue from the entry fees collected for the tournament game. The bill also increases the maximum entry fee for tournament game players.
