A08053 Memo:

NEW YORK STATE ASSEMBLY
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF LEGISLATION
submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A8053A
 
SPONSOR: Hawley
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the general municipal law, in relation to the internet sale of raffle tickets   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: To further enhance the ability of non-profit organizations to sell raffle tickets via the Internet. SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill amends subparagraph (2) of paragraph (b) of subdivision 13 of Section 189 and subdivision 4 of Section 190-a of the General Municipal Law to provide that for the purpose of raffle tickets sold solely over the internet the sale of such tickets shall be deemed to have occurred on the premises of the authorized organization as games of chance lessor.   JUSTIFICATION: Chapter 404 of the Laws of 2017 authorized non-profit organizations to not only sell raffle tickets over the internet, but also to accept payment by means of credit or debit card. Sales of raffle tickets, though, are still constrained by provisions of law that restrict such sales to municipalities in the county where the organization in the county where the organization is located and municipalities in contig- uous counties provided such municipalities have passed a local law authorizing their sale. The bill's provisions recognize that any sale of a raffle ticket over the internet - no matter where the purchaser is physically located - to have occurred on the premises of the non-profit organization. Please note that the original print of the bill also authorized the sale of raffle tickets over the internet along with payment by credit card; however, those provisions have been rendered moot by virtue of Chapter 464 of the Laws of 2017.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2017: A.8053 died in Assembly Racing and Wagering.   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:   EFFECTIVE DATE: Immediately.
