GAMBLING-MUST BE 21
Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
Amends the Illinois Lottery Law to ban persons under 21 years of
age from purchasing lottery tickets. Amends the Illinois Horse Racing
Act of 1975 to ban persons under 21 years of age from being a patron
of the pari-mutuel system of wagering. Effective immediately.
STATE DEBT NOTE, H-AM 1 (Economic and Fiscal Commission)
This legislation would not affect the bonding authorization of
the State, and, therefore, has no direct impact on the level of
FISCAL NOTE, AMENDED (Illinois State Lottery)
The fiscal impact of HB 3490 would be very difficult to deter-
mine. As little as a 5% decrease in lottery play would have a
$75 million impact on sales. After payment of lottery prizes,
deduction of administrative costs, and various payments to
vendors, approximately 36% of lottery profits are transferred
to the Common School Fund. It is estimated that HB 3490 will
result in a decrease of transfers to the Common School Fund of
several million dollars.
HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.
Further amends the Illinois Lottery Law and the Illinois Horse
Racing Act of 1975. Provides that the provisions increasing the
minimum legal age for purchasing lottery tickets and for participating
in the pari-mutuel system of wagering do not apply to persons who are
in active duty in the United States armed services.
