Proposed changes to Rule 10 - updated 7/9/18

Proposed changes to Rules 10, 21, and 22


On May 17, 2018 the Colorado Limited Gaming Control Commission voted unanimously to approve the proposed $5 increase to the background investigation hourly rate.  The Commission did not make any changes to the current licensing fees.  This change will be effective July 1, 2018.
 

On April 19, 2018 the Colorado Limited Gaming Control Commission voted unanimously to approve the proposed changes to Rule 14.  These changes will be effective July 1, 2018.

 

House Bill 15-1255 required that the Department of Revenue (DOR) adopt rules pursuant to the “State Administrative Procedure Act”, article 4 of title 24, C.R.S.  The purpose of these rules and regulations is to govern the enforcement of the prohibited use of electronic benefits transfer service cards at automated teller machines located in licensed gaming establishments, in-state simulcast facilities, race tracks, establishments licensed to sell malt, vinous, or spirituous liquors, medical marijuana businesses, and retail marijuana establishments.  Rule 1 CCR 210-4 Enforcement of the Prohibited Use of Electronic Benefits Transfer Cards at Certain Locations (EBT) went into effect as of January 1, 2016.  In November of 2016 the Office Of Legislative Legal Services (OLLS) expressed concern that the EBT Rule did not specify that there would be “increasing penalties for multiple violations” as was required by House Bill 15-1255.  The OLLS directed the DOR to revise the rule to include this requirement. 

The DOR drafted proposed changes to the EBT Rule, which were e-mailed to stakeholders on March 30, 2017.

HB17-1365, signed by the Governor on June 6, 2017, creates an exemption for liquor-licensed drug stores from the prohibition against having electronic benefits transfer (EBT) services available through an ATM located on a licensed premises. The EBT Rule has been updated to include this exemption.

The Executive Director of the Dept. of Revenue, Barbara Brohl, officially adopted the rule changes as of July 19, 2017.  These changes will be effective as of September 14, 2017.

1 CCR 210-4
