Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Riverboat Gambling Act. Provides that the Illinois          
   Gaming Board shall have the power to determine which entitites and          
   persons shall be subject to Board approval for involvement in the own-      
   ership or operation of riverboat gambling in Illinois and to approve        
   the participation of those entitites and persons. Gives the Board the       
   power to require the removal of an officer, director, or shareholder        
   of a license or to require the termination of a business relationship       
   for a violation of the Act or of a Board rule or  for  engaging  in  a      
   fraudulent  practice.   Gives  the  Board  the  power  to petition the      
   circuit court of Sangamon County for appointment of a receiver  for  a      
   riverboat  gambling  operation if certain conditions exist.  Creates a      
   code of conduct for members  and  employees  of  the  Board.   Removes      
   certain  restrictions  concerning where licensees shall be required to      
   conduct riverboat gambling,  but  requires  that  at  least  6  owners      
   licenses shall specify that riverboats dock and operate outside of the      
   counties  of  Cook,  DuPage,  Kane, Lake, McHenry, and Will.  Provides      
   that upon the expiration of an owners license the Board may renew that      
   license for up to 4 years.  Provides that the  Board  shall  establish      
   requirements  for  the  times  and  conditions  under  which riverboat      
   gambling may be conducted.  Provides that it is a petty offense for  a      
   person  under the age of 21 years to enter upon a riverboat, except as      
   authorized by the Act.  Effective immediately.
