Cardrooms (Oppose – Preemption) 

Cardrooms (Oppose – Preemption) 

HB 6029 (Plakon) shifts the required local approval for cardroom gaming from the governing board of the city to the governing board of the county, even if the facility will be located within municipal boundaries. Current law requires the city commission to approve cardroom gaming by a majority vote if the cardroom gaming operation will be located within that city. (Cook)
