Fiscal Detail and Notes
This legislation proposes to change the net table game distribution at the Hollywood Casino without affecting the overall tax structure.  It eliminates the 2% currently held for distribution to charitable nonprofit corporations eligible to conduct beano or games of chance and instead distributes that 2% to the Coordinated Veterans Assistance Grant Fund within the Department of Defense, Veterans and Emergency Management.  It also specifies certain distributions to be made annually from this Fund.
The bill includes an Other Special Revenue Funds deallocation to the Department of Public Safety of $186,707 in fiscal year 2012-13 and $152,360 in fiscal year 2013-14 with a corresponding Other Special Revenue Funds allocation to the Department of Defense, Veterans and Emergency Management.  Other Special Revenue Funds revenue would also be reduced and increased by the same amounts.
