Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Video Gaming Act. Provides that imposing fees on an establishment authorized to conduct video gaming and on terminal operators is an exclusive power and function of the State. Prohibits a unit of local government with a population under 2,000,000 from applying any additional tax on net terminal income. Provides that a unit of local government (rather than a non-home rule unit of government) may not impose a fee for the operation of a video gaming terminal in excess of $100 per year (rather than $25). Provides that any unit of local government imposing a fee for the operation of a video gaming terminal in excess of $100 on or before January 1, 2020 may retain its fee structure but may not increase fees beyond the limit provided in the provisions. Provides that a home rule unity may not regulate the provisions in a manner inconsistent with the provisions. Effective immediately.
