PA HB 777 - Signed into law by the Governor Nov. 25, 2020.
Under the Small Games of Chance Act, the proceeds from the games are split 60 percent to charitable purposes and 40 percent remains with the clubs. This legislation changes this for times of an emergency disaster, such as COVID-19 when the clubs are forced to close and are losing general operating revenue and Small Games of Chance proceeds.  During an emergency disaster, a club would be able to use the 60 percent of Small Games of Chance money to cover general operating expenses of the club, including rent, payroll, and utilities. It should be recorded how the funds are spent.
