    We come to You at this quiet moment with a great sigh of relief. It has been 120 days since the opening day of this Session. Now we have come to the end. As these Senators look back at the work that they have done, may they go to their homes with pride in their hearts that they have done the best for the people of this State.

    But, may they also in all humility recognize that it really was not just their cleverness that helped them accomplish this task. May they give credit to You who gave them the ability to do their tasks. Bless each one of the members of this body as they go home. In their work, in their play, may they find a new awareness of their need for You. We ask in Jesus’ Name.

Amen.

    (a) All licenses issued to the same person, including a wholly owned subsidiary of that person, for the operation of any game, including a sports pool or race book, which authorize gaming at the same establishment must be merged into a single gaming license.

    (b) A gaming license may not be issued to any person if the issuance would result in more than one licensed operation at a single establishment, whether or not the profits or revenue from gaming are shared between the licensed operations.

    2.  A person who has been issued a nonrestricted gaming license may establish a sports pool or race book on the premises of the establishment at which he conducts a nonrestricted gaming operation only after obtaining permission from the commission.

    3.  A person who has been issued a license to operate a sports pool or race book at an establishment may be issued a license to operate a sports pool or race book at another establishment if the second establishment is operated by a person who has been issued a nonrestricted license.

    4.  Nothing in this section limits or prohibits an operator of an inter-casino linked system from placing and operating such a system on the premises of two or more gaming licensees and receiving, either directly or indirectly, any compensation or any percentage or share of the money or property played from the linked games in accordance with the provisions of this chapter and the regulations adopted by the commission. An inter-casino linked system must not be used to link games other than slot machines, unless such games are located at an establishment that is licensed for games other than slot machines.

    5.  The provisions of this section do not apply to a license to operate interactive gaming.

    Sec. 16. NRS 463.335 is hereby amended to read as follows:

    463.335  1.  The legislature finds that, to protect and promote the health, safety, morals, good order and general welfare of the inhabitants of the State of Nevada and to carry out the policy declared in NRS 463.0129, it is necessary that the board:

    (a) Ascertain and keep itself informed of the identity, prior activities and present location of all gaming employees and independent agents in the State of Nevada; and

    (b) Maintain confidential records of such information.

    2.  Except as otherwise provided in [subsections 3 and 4,] subsection 3, a person may not be employed as a gaming employee or serve as an independent agent unless he is the holder of[:

    (a) A valid work permit issued in accordance with the applicable ordinances or regulations of the county or city in which his duties are performed and the provisions of this chapter; or

    (b) A valid work permit issued by the board, if a work permit is not required by either the county or the city.] a valid work permit to work as a gaming employee issued pursuant to this section. A work permit to work as a gaming employee may be issued by the board or by a county or city licensing authority. An applicant for a work permit shall file his application for a work permit with the licensing authority of the city in which he resides if that city requires a work permit. If the city in which he resides does not require such a permit, the applicant shall file his application with the licensing authority of the county in which he resides if that county requires a work permit. If the county in which he resides does not require such a permit, the applicant shall file his application with the board. The board shall, by regulation, prescribe the form for an application for a work permit to work as a gaming employee. The fee for such a permit may be charged only to cover the actual investigative and administrative costs related to processing an application for such a permit and must not exceed $75.

    3.  An independent agent is not required to hold a work permit if he is not a resident of this state and has registered with the board in accordance with the provisions of the regulations adopted by the commission.

    4.  [A person may be employed as a gaming employee for an operator of a slot machine route and perform duties for his employer in more than one county or city without obtaining a valid work permit for each county or city in which he performs those duties if the person holds:

    (a) A valid work permit issued in accordance with the applicable ordinances or regulations of the county or city in which his duties are primarily performed and the provisions of this chapter; or

    (b) A valid work permit issued by the board, if a work permit is not required by either the county or the city in which his duties are primarily performed.

    5.  A gaming employee described in subsection 4 shall notify the licensing authority of each city and county in which he performs duties for his employer, other than the licensing authority that issued his valid work permit, that he has obtained a valid work permit pursuant to subsection 4.

    6.] Upon receipt of an application for a work permit to work as a gaming employee, the board or licensing authority shall conduct an investigation of the applicant to determine whether he is eligible for the permit. In conducting the investigation, the board or licensing authority shall forward a complete set of the applicant’s fingerprints to the central repository for Nevada records of criminal history for submission to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for a report concerning the criminal history of the applicant. The investigation need not be limited solely to consideration of the results of the report concerning the criminal history of the applicant.

    5.  A work permit issued to a gaming employee or an independent agent must have clearly imprinted thereon a statement that it is valid for gaming purposes only.

    6.  Unless denied or objected to by the board at the time that the permittee filed a notice of a change in his place of employment pursuant to subsection 8 and unless suspended or revoked, such a permit expires on the fifth anniversary of the permittee’s birthday, measured from the birthday nearest the date of issuance or renewal. If the date of birth of a permittee is on February 29 in a leap year, for the purposes of this section, his date of birth shall be deemed to be on February 28.

    7.  Whenever any person applies to a county or city licensing authority for the issuance or renewal of a work permit, the county or city officer or employee to whom the application is made shall within 24 hours mail or deliver a copy thereof to the board, and may at the discretion of the county or city licensing authority issue a temporary work permit [.] that is valid for 120 days. If within [90] 120 days after receipt by the board of the copy of the application, the board has not notified the county or city licensing authority of any objection, the authority may issue, renew or deny a permanent work permit to the applicant.

    8.  A gaming employee who is issued a work permit [must obtain renewal of the permit from the issuing agency within 10 days following any change of his place of employment. An independent agent who is issued a work permit must obtain renewal of the permit from the issuing agency within 10 days after executing an agreement to serve as an independent agent within the jurisdiction of the issuing agency.

    8.] is eligible for employment in any licensed gaming establishment in this state until the work permit is denied or objected to by the board, expires or is revoked. However, each such employee shall notify the board within 10 days following any change of his place of employment at a gaming establishment. Such a notification shall be deemed an application for a work permit that the board may deny or object to after conducting any investigations the board deems appropriate. The provisions of subsections 9 to 16, inclusive, apply to any such objection of the board. The commission shall adopt regulations to:

    (a) Facilitate uniform procedures for the issuance of work permits by counties and cities;

    (b) Establish uniform criteria for denial by a county or city licensing authority of an application for a work permit; and

    (c) Provide for the creation and maintenance of a system of records that contain information regarding the current place of employment of each person who possesses a valid work permit.

    9.  If the board, within the [90-day] 120-day period, notifies:

    (a) The county or city licensing authority; and

    (b) The applicant,

that the board objects to the granting of a work permit to the applicant, the authority shall deny the work permit and shall immediately revoke and repossess any temporary work permit which it may have issued. The notice of objection by the board which is sent to the applicant must include a statement of the facts upon which the board relied in making its objection.

    [9.  Application for a work permit may be made to the board, and may be granted or denied for any cause deemed reasonable by the board.]

    10.  Whenever an application for a work permit is made to the board and the board denies such an application, it shall include in its notice of the denial a statement of the facts upon which it relied in denying the application. [Except for a permit issued to a person pursuant to subsection 4, a permit issued by the board is valid only in a county or city that does not require a work permit.

    10.] 11.  Any person whose application for a work permit has been denied because of an objection by the board or whose application has been denied by the board may, not later than 60 days after receiving notice of the denial or objection, apply to the board for a hearing. A failure of a person whose application has been denied to apply for a hearing within 60 days or his failure to appear at a hearing of the board conducted pursuant to this section shall be deemed to be an admission that the denial or objection is well founded, and the failure precludes administrative or judicial review. At the hearing, the board shall take any testimony deemed necessary. After the hearing the board shall review the testimony taken and any other evidence, and shall within 45 days after the date of the hearing mail to the applicant its decision sustaining or reversing the denial of the work permit or the objection to the issuance of a work permit.

    [11.] 12.  The board may object to the issuance of a work permit or may refuse to issue a work permit for any cause deemed reasonable by the board. The board may object or refuse if the applicant has:

    (a) Failed to disclose or misstated information or otherwise attempted to mislead the board with respect to any material fact contained in the application for the issuance or renewal of a work permit;

    (b) Knowingly failed to comply with the provisions of this chapter or chapter 463B, 464 or 465 of NRS or the regulations of the commission at a place of previous employment;

    (c) Committed, attempted or conspired to commit any crime of moral turpitude, embezzlement or larceny or any violation of any law pertaining to gaming, or any crime which is inimical to the declared policy of this state concerning gaming;

    (d) Committed, attempted or conspired to commit a crime which is a felony or gross misdemeanor in this state or an offense in another state or jurisdiction which would be a felony or gross misdemeanor if committed in this state;

    (e) Been identified in the published reports of any federal or state legislative or executive body as being a member or associate of organized crime, or as being of notorious and unsavory reputation;

    (f) Been placed and remains in the constructive custody of any federal, state or municipal law enforcement authority; or

    (g) Had a work permit revoked or committed any act which is a ground for the revocation of a work permit or would have been a ground for revoking his work permit if he had then held a work permit.

If the board issues or does not object to the issuance of a work permit to an applicant , [who has been convicted of a crime which is a felony, gross misdemeanor or misdemeanor,] it may specially limit the period for which the permit is valid, limit the job classifications for which the holder of the permit may be employed and establish such individual conditions for the issuance, renewal and effectiveness of the permit as the board deems appropriate, including required submission to unscheduled tests for the presence of alcohol or controlled substances.

    [12.] 13.  Any applicant aggrieved by the decision of the board may, within 15 days after the announcement of the decision, apply in writing to the commission for review of the decision. Review is limited to the record of the proceedings before the board. The commission may sustain, modify or reverse the board’s decision. The decision of the commission is subject to judicial review pursuant to NRS 463.315 to 463.318, inclusive.

    [13.] 14.  Except as otherwise provided in this subsection, all records acquired or compiled by the board or commission relating to any application made pursuant to this section and all lists of persons to whom work permits have been issued or denied and all records of the names or identity of persons engaged in the gaming industry in this state are confidential and must not be disclosed except in the proper administration of this chapter or to an authorized law enforcement agency. Upon receipt of a request from the welfare division of the department of human resources pursuant to NRS 425.400 for information relating to a specific person who has applied for or holds a work permit, the board shall disclose to the division his social security number, residential address and current employer as that information is listed in the files and records of the board. Any record of the board or commission which shows that the applicant has been convicted of a crime in another state must show whether the crime was a misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor, felony or other class of crime as classified by the state in which the crime was committed. In a disclosure of the conviction, reference to the classification of the crime must be based on the classification in the state where it was committed.

    [14.  A work permit expires unless renewed in accordance with subsection 7, or if the holder thereof is not employed as a gaming employee or does not serve as an independent agent within the jurisdiction of the issuing authority for more than 90 days.]

    15.  The chairman of the board may designate a member of the board or the board may appoint a hearing examiner and authorize that person to perform on behalf of the board any of the following functions required of the board by this section concerning work permits:

    (a) Conducting a hearing and taking testimony;

    (b) Reviewing the testimony and evidence presented at the hearing;

    (c) Making a recommendation to the board based upon the testimony and evidence or rendering a decision on behalf of the board to sustain or reverse the denial of a work permit or the objection to the issuance or renewal of a work permit; and

    (d) Notifying the applicant of the decision.

    16.  Notice by the board as provided pursuant to this section is sufficient if it is mailed to the applicant’s last known address as indicated on the application for a work permit, or the record of the hearing, as the case may be. The date of mailing may be proven by a certificate signed by an officer or employee of the board which specifies the time the notice was mailed. The notice shall be deemed to have been received by the applicant 5 days after it is deposited with the United States Postal Service with the postage thereon prepaid.

    Sec. 17.  NRS 463.3557 is hereby amended to read as follows:

    463.3557  [An]

    Sec. 18.  NRS 463.361 is hereby amended to read as follows:

    463.361  1.  Except as otherwise provided in section 4 of this act and NRS 463.361 to 463.366, inclusive, gaming debts that are not evidenced by a credit instrument are void and unenforceable and do not give rise to any administrative or civil cause of action.

    2.  A claim by a patron of a licensee for payment of a gaming debt that is not evidenced by a credit instrument may be resolved in accordance with NRS 463.362 to 463.366, inclusive:

    (a) By the board; or

    (b) If the claim is for less than $500, by a hearing examiner designated by the board.

    Sec. 19.  NRS 463.370 is hereby amended to read as follows:

    463.370  1.  Except as otherwise provided in NRS 463.373, the commission shall charge and collect from each licensee a license fee based upon all the gross revenue of the licensee as follows:

    (a) Three percent of all the gross revenue of the licensee which does not exceed $50,000 per calendar month;

    (b) Four percent of all the gross revenue of the licensee which exceeds $50,000 per calendar month and does not exceed $134,000 per calendar month; and

    (c) Six and one-quarter percent of all the gross revenue of the licensee which exceeds $134,000 per calendar month.

    2.  Unless the licensee has been operating for less than a full calendar month, the commission shall charge and collect the fee prescribed in subsection 1, based upon the gross revenue for the preceding calendar month, on or before the 24th day of the following month. Except for the fee based on the first full month of operation, the fee is an estimated payment of the license fee for the third month following the month whose gross revenue is used as its basis.

    3.  When a licensee has been operating for less than a full calendar month, the commission shall charge and collect the fee prescribed in subsection 1, based on the gross revenue received during that month, on or before the 24th day of the following calendar month of operation. After the first full calendar month of operation, the commission shall charge and collect the fee based on the gross revenue received during that month, on or before the 24th day of the following calendar month. The payment of the fee due for the first full calendar month of operation must be accompanied by the payment of a fee equal to three times the fee for the first full calendar month. This additional amount is an estimated payment of the license fees for the next 3 calendar months. Thereafter, each license fee must be paid in the manner described in subsection 2. Any deposit held by the commission on July 1, 1969, must be treated as an advance estimated payment.

    4.  All revenue received from any game or gaming device which is operated on the premises of a licensee, regardless of whether any portion of the revenue is shared with any other person, must be attributed to the licensee for the purposes of this section and counted as part of the gross revenue of the licensee. Any other person, including, without limitation, an operator of an inter-casino linked system, who is authorized to receive a share of the revenue from any game, gaming device or inter-casino linked system that is operated on the premises of a licensee is liable to the licensee for that person’s proportionate share of the license fees paid by the licensee pursuant to this section and shall remit or credit the full proportionate share to the licensee on or before the 24th day of each calendar month. The proportionate share of an operator of an inter-casino linked system must be based on all compensation and other consideration received by the operator of the inter-casino linked system, including, without limitation, amounts that accrue to the meter of the primary progressive jackpot of the inter-casino linked system and amounts that fund the reserves of such a jackpot, subject to all appropriate adjustments for deductions, credits, offsets and exclusions that the licensee is entitled to take or receive pursuant to the provisions of this chapter. A licensee is not liable to any other person authorized to receive a share of the licensee’s revenue from any game, gaming device or inter-casino linked system that is operated on the premises of the licensee for that person’s proportionate share of the license fees to be remitted or credited to the licensee by that person pursuant to this section.

    5.  An operator of an inter-casino linked system shall not enter into any agreement or arrangement with a licensee that provides for the operator of the inter-casino linked system to be liable to the licensee for less than its full proportionate share of the license fees paid by the licensee pursuant to this section, whether accomplished through a rebate, refund, charge-back or otherwise.

    6.  Any person required to pay a fee pursuant to this section shall file with the commission, on or before the 24th day of each calendar month, a report showing the amount of all gross revenue received during the preceding calendar month. Each report must be accompanied by:

    (a) The fee due based on the revenue of the month covered by the report; and

    (b) An adjustment for the difference between the estimated fee previously paid for the month covered by the report, if any, and the fee due for the actual gross revenue earned in that month. If the adjustment is less than zero, a credit must be applied to the estimated fee due with that report.

    7.  If the amount of license fees required to be reported and paid pursuant to this section is later determined to be greater or less than the amount actually reported and paid, the commission shall:

    (a) Charge and collect the additional license fees determined to be due, with interest thereon until paid; or

    (b) Refund any overpayment to the person entitled thereto pursuant to this chapter, with interest thereon.

Interest pursuant to paragraph (a) must be computed at the rate prescribed in NRS 17.130 from the first day of the first month following [either] the due date of the additional license fees [or the date of overpayment] until paid. Interest pursuant to paragraph (b) must be computed at one-half the rate prescribed in NRS 17.130 from the first day of the first month following the date of overpayment until paid.

    8.  Failure to pay the fees provided for in this section shall be deemed a surrender of the license at the expiration of the period for which the estimated payment of fees has been made, as established in subsection 2.

    9.  Except as otherwise provided in NRS 463.386, the amount of the fee prescribed in subsection 1 must not be prorated.

    10.  Except as otherwise provided in NRS 463.386, if a licensee ceases operation, the commission shall:

    (a) Charge and collect the additional license fees determined to be due with interest[;] computed pursuant to paragraph (a) of subsection 7; or

    (b) Refund any overpayment[, with interest thereon,] to the licensee[,] with interest computed pursuant to paragraph (b) of subsection 7,

based upon the gross revenue of the licensee during the last 3 months immediately preceding the cessation of operation, or portions of those last 3 months.

    11.  If in any month, the amount of gross revenue is less than zero, the licensee may offset the loss against gross revenue in succeeding months until the loss has been fully offset.

    12.  If in any month, the amount of the license fee due is less than zero, the licensee is entitled to receive a credit against any license fees due in succeeding months until the credit has been fully offset.

    Sec. 20.  NRS 463.387 is hereby amended to read as follows:

    463.387  1.  State gaming license fees or taxes paid in excess of the amount required to be reported and paid may be refunded, upon the approval of the commission, as other claims against the state are paid.

    2.  Within 90 days after the mailing of the notice of the commission’s action upon a claim for refund filed pursuant to this chapter, the claimant may bring an action against the commission on the grounds set forth in the claim in any court of competent jurisdiction for the recovery of the whole or any part of the amount with respect to which the claim has been disallowed.

    3.  Failure to bring an action within the time specified in subsection 2 constitutes a waiver of any demand against the state on account of alleged overpayments.

    4.  Within 20 days after the mailing of the notice of the commission’s action upon a claim for refund filed pursuant to this chapter, the claimant may file a motion for rehearing with the commission. The commission must take action on the motion for rehearing within 50 days after it has been filed with the commission. If the motion for rehearing is granted, the commission’s earlier action upon the claim for refund is rescinded and the 90-day period specified in subsection 2 does not begin until the commission mails notice of its action upon the claim following the rehearing.

    5.  If the commission fails to mail its notice of action on a claim within 6 months after the claim is filed or reheard, the claimant may consider the claim disallowed and bring an action against the commission on the grounds set forth in the claim for the recovery of the whole or any part of the amount claimed as an overpayment.

    6.  In any case where a refund is granted, interest must be allowed at one-half the rate prescribed in NRS 17.130 upon the amount found to have been erroneously paid from the first day of the first month following the date of overpayment until paid. The commission may in its discretion deny or limit the payment of interest if it finds that the claimant has failed to file a claim for a refund within 90 days after receiving written notification of overpayment from the board or has impeded the board’s ability to process the claim in a timely manner.

    7.  Notwithstanding the provisions of NRS 353.115, any claim for refund of state gaming license fees or taxes paid in excess of the amount required to be reported and paid[,] must be filed with the commission within 5 years after the date of overpayment and not thereafter.

    8.  The provisions of this chapter must not be construed to permit the proration of state gaming taxes or license fees for purposes of a refund.

    Sec. 21.  NRS 463.400 is hereby amended to read as follows:

    463.400  Any person who willfully fails to report, pay or truthfully account for and pay over the license fees imposed by NRS 463.370, 463.373 to 463.3855, inclusive, and sections 6 to 9, inclusive, of this act, 463.390 and 463.450, or willfully attempts in any manner to evade or defeat any such tax or payment thereof, or any licensee who puts additional games into play without authority of the commission to do so or any licensee who fails to remit any license fee provided for by this chapter when due is in addition to the amount due liable for a penalty of the amount of the license fee evaded or not paid, collected or paid over. The penalty must be assessed and collected in the same manner as are other charges, license fees and penalties under this chapter.

    463.403  1.  Every person required to pay the tax imposed by NRS 463.401 shall file with the commission, on or before the 24th day of each month, a report showing the amount of all taxable receipts for the preceding month.

    2.  Each report must be accompanied by the amount of tax which is due for the month covered by the report.

    3.  If the amount of tax required to be reported and paid pursuant to NRS 463.401 is later determined to be greater or less than the amount actually reported and paid, the commission shall:

    (a) Charge and collect the additional tax determined to be due, with interest thereon until paid; or

    (b) Refund any overpayment to the person entitled thereto pursuant to this chapter, with interest thereon.

Interest [is] pursuant to paragraph (a) must be computed at the rate prescribed in NRS 17.130 from the first day of the first month following [either] the due date of the additional tax [or the date of overpayment] until paid.

    2.  The commission shall collect the fee on or before the last day of each calendar month for the preceding calendar month.

    3.  If the amount of the fee required by this section to be reported and paid is determined to be different than the amount reported or paid by the licensee, the commission shall:

        Senate Conference Committee

          Assembly Conference Committee

    Senator James moved that the Senate adopt the report of the first Conference Committee concerning Assembly Bill No. 466.

    Remarks by Senators James, Care, Coffin, Neal, Titus, McGinness and Porter.

    Senator Coffin disclosed that he has clients who would have an interest in interactive gaming.

    Senator Porter requested that the following remarks be entered in the Journal.

    Senator James:

    Madam President, the conference committee’s reported amendment would provide for interactive gaming which is defined as the conduct of conducting games through the use of communications technology that allows the person utilizing money, checks, etc., to transfer to computer information to assist in the placing of a bet or wager. Interactive gaming does not apply to the operation of a legally operated race book or sports pool that approves communication technology. The amendment specifies that all gross revenue from interactive gaming received by the establishment licensed to operate interactive gaming must be attributed to the license and counted as part of the licensee’s gross revenue for purposes of computing the regular license fee. In addition, the manufacturer of interactive gaming systems, who is authorized by an agreement to receive a share of the revenue from interactive gaming systems, is liable to the licensed establishment for a portion of the license fee. The portion for which the manufacturer is liable is 6.25 percent of the amount of the revenue to which the manufacturer is entitled to pursuant to the agreement. The amendment also strengthens the prohibitions on illegal activity associated with fixed sporting events and interactive gaming. Further, the amendment revises the computation of interest payable by the Nevada Gaming Commission on the overpayment of certain fees and taxes. Lastly, the amendment also broadens the requirements for applying a finding of suitability to include persons who acquire a beneficial ownership in a publicly traded corporation registered with the commission.

    Senator Care:

    Thank you, Madam President. Assembly Bill No. 466 began as a work–card bill, and it, obviously, is not that any longer. The vote on this bill is a vote on whether the State is going to permit the Commission and the Board to draft regulations and develop a scheme or apparatus to have Internet gaming in this State on the assumption that there is no federal prohibition against it. Assembly Bill No. 466 was introduced as a work–card bill. It came out of the Assembly as a work–card bill. It came before our committee as a work–card bill. We heard it on May 17, and on May 21, we amended it.

    That amendment is interesting, too. Originally, that amendment was supposed to be, or it was suggested that it would be, a part of an amendment of a bill, Assembly Bill No. 578, the so-called Internet gaming bill. As I recall it, the proponents of the Internet gaming agreed that the amendments, which then went into the work–card bill, did not properly go with an Internet gaming bill. When Assembly Bill No. 466 came out of the Judiciary Committee there was no reference to Internet gaming. Now, interestingly, after we have had the motion here today, it is clear what has happened.

    We did pass, out of committee, Assembly Bill No. 578 on May 21 with an amendment. I was the only one to vote against it. Again, that is the Internet gaming bill. If you will recall, the proponents of Assembly Bill No. 578 put it on the Secretary’s desk. The proponents left it on the desk. The proponents let it stay on the desk, and it died on the desk. What has happened is that Assembly Bill No. 578 has been smuggled into a Conference Committee, and we have been deprived, in my judgment, of any opportunity to have public discussion and public debate about a very public concern and a very public issue.

    This motion, today, is about two things. It is about Internet gaming, but it is also about the process itself. If Assembly Bill No. 578 had come up for a vote on General File, I was prepared to offer an amendment. In fact, there were several amendments that other people were prepared to offer. Mine was simple. It would have said, “No, we are not going to say you have to pay $500,000 for a license for Internet gaming.” I believe in equal opportunity. I believe in free competition. I believe in the forces of the marketplace. My amendment would have said, “Any non-restricted licensee, not just a resort, a brick and mortar resort, in a county in excess of 400,000 who can afford to plop down $500,000 would be allowed to have Internet gaming.” My amendment would have said, “Open to anyone with a non-restricted license.” It had nothing to do with counties. It also said, realistically, “We will have $5,000 fees.” They would be $5,000 application fees, $5,000 renewal fees and $5,000 license fees. That is what I was prepared to do with my amendment. But, unfortunately, we do not get to vote on that amendment so I do not have the vote, but I still have my voice.

    Let me give you the reasoning behind what my amendment would have done. In the spirit of America, entrepreneurship, invisionaries, investment and risk, I want to read an excerpt from a book entitled the Maverick Spirit, Building the New Nevada edited by Richard O. Davies. There is a passage on page 208 that says, “There was a sameness on the Strip. Las Vegas was like the portrait of Dorian Grey. The world had been moving by for 20 years, but everything here stayed the same. You didn’t have to be a genius to be a top dog. All you had to do was walk into the present.” Those are the words of Steve Wynn, a visionary and entrepreneur if there ever was one.

    My amendment was in the same spirit that is reflected in the passage I just read. The arguments that you are going to hear is that the investment of one or two exclusive resorts must be protected. That is the reason that the amendment, the Internet gaming bill, the conference report, whatever you want to call it, was drafted. I do not agree with that. There is nothing that says the Legislature has a duty to protect an investment. The marketplace does that, purely the marketplace. The theory is that if you have gone to the expense to build a brick and mortar resort in a county in excess of 400,000 populations, you have some right to have that investment protected at the expense of everybody else who wants to compete in a legal industry. Think about what that means. What if there had been a law that says you cannot sell books on the Internet unless you have a brick and mortar bookstore. You would never have heard of Amazon.com because that is the way Amazon.com. got started. You could only buy books from Barnes and Nobel and Borders if you had a law like that and it went to the Internet.

    It is the same thing with the fees. The rational behind the fees, that I was going to offer in my amendment, is the same. The State should be entitled to make some revenue off of the application fees and license fees; $500,000, I do not think so. Not everyone can afford to do that. Not everyone at all. This amendment, this bill, this conference report contradicts all the spirit that made America what it is and the competitive marketplace that we enjoy today.

    I will point out a few other things. We did not get the bill, as I say, until May 17 in Judiciary. We had limited discussion on a very important subject, in my mind. We did not have the opportunity to discuss several aspects of Internet gaming. What safeguards are there to keep it out of the hands of children? I know the experts say that those safeguards exist, but we never really got into it. At what rate should Internet gaming be taxed? We never got into that. This amendment says, basically, that it is going to be the same tax rate that is already in place for all gaming. But that presupposes that Internet gaming is the same as casino gaming. Where is the overhead on Internet gaming? How many bartenders, waitresses and maids do you have to hire to have Internet gaming? Why should they be taxed the same way? We will never have that discussion because, again, I did not have the opportunity to offer any kind of an amendment or to participate in any other public discussion. We never really discussed, to any great length, the federal laws, the Travel Act, the Wire Act, the Wager and Paraphernalia Act, the possibility of additional legislation from U.S. Senator Kyl that might outlaw Internet gaming altogether. Earlier in the Session, we had a bill from Senator Schneider that came before the Judiciary Committee. He wanted to statutorily redefine the definition of a resort hotel to include a timeshare project with 200 rooms or more. We amended that bill. The feeling was from the opponents of that bill that the bill was such a novel and complex subject we need to study it. We amended the bill and said we need to study timeshares, and we also said in that amended bill we need to study Internet gaming. The bill died on the Assembly side. There is no study of Internet gaming. It is before us, today, in the form of this motion. What this motion is asking us to do, in my judgment, is to give a legislatively sanctioned monopoly for an exclusive few in a state and in a city, in particular, that have always prided themselves on the competitive nature of the marketplace. Thank you.

    Senator Coffin:

    Thank you, Madam President. I have a client who is in this business who is eligible to participate in this endeavor. I have to declare this exists and also declare that I do not know what his opinion would be about this. He certainly has the money. The client is wealthy. The client is qualified in all of the aspects of it. But I am not going to abstain on this bill. In fact, I will vote “no” on the amendment, and I will tell you why, for the arguments advanced so much more eloquently than me by Senator Care.

    What has this done for us? It just shows that only a few people can participate and that would include my client. I am sure you do not have to be huge to have a lot of money. But what happens to the small counties that were left out? They would like to be in it. Some of them had hoped to be able to offer gaming on the Internet. I am familiar with the Internet since I sell my little books on the Internet and have seen a lot of small businesses develop into big businesses. It would be nice in the rural counties if they could, in fact, have that advantage. This amendment does not give it to them. In the interest of fairness, and for all the other procedural and process reasons that Senator Care mentioned, I have to oppose this as being unfairly slanted to just a few people. I must say that not knowing that this was going to come back, I called one of the chief officers, if not the chief executive officer, of one of the corporations, which was a lead sponsor behind this legislation. I congratulated them for their effort after they had pulled the bill. I thought they had pulled it permanently due to criticism that was being heaped upon them and the lack of votes at that time. I did not know it was coming back. I do not know if it was his idea. He, at that time, said thank you, very much. I appreciated that, and I thought it was good sportsmanship. He did not indicate he was bringing it back. I am not sure that he did. I do not know if this came at his request or someone else’s request now. In any event, it is in front of us. I understand there will be a roll call vote on this, which I would sustain. I will also vote against the amendment, the conference report.

    Senator Neal:

    Madam President, I rise in opposition to the adoption of this measure for many of the same reasons stated by my colleagues on this side. One of the things that we must protect in this process, even if we win or lose, we must have the opportunity to debate fully an issue that is brought before this body. We must be able to amend, to offer suggestions, to offer change to the proposal before us. This particular measure, as it involves Internet gaming, has come to us with the prime purpose in mind that no amendment can be offered due to the procedure in which this proposal is before us. We have to adopt or not adopt. But we cannot offer any suggestions. What that says to me, Madam President and those who are pushing this measure, that what is good for gaming is good for the rest of the public. If gaming says it is all right, then it is all right. Let no one in this body who has a different view try to present that view on this particular question. I will not repeat what Senator Coffin and Senator Care have said relative to this measure, but Senator Care raised a very important question about whether or not necessary controls will exist to prevent children from gambling on the Internet.

    Children of today are a very educated lot. They know how to access computers. They know how to play the games, but yet, these questions as to whether or not they are able to gamble are not being put before this body in terms of amendments that might be necessary to give direction to the Gaming Control Board or the Gaming Commission.

    We are here either to vote this up or down. You either like it or you do not. This seems to be the position. It is bad policy for major issues to come before this Legislature and this body in this fashion. I will be voting against the bill, and I will also request that we have a roll call vote on this issue.

    Senator Titus:

    Thank you, Madam President. I, too, regret that this has come to us in this form instead of in the bill that now sits on the desk. Because then it could have been debated more openly, and it would not appear as though something was trying to be snuck through. I would say, though, that I voted for the Internet gaming bill in the Judiciary Committee. I know there are some reservations about it, but I believe we need to move forward in this area because technological developments occur quickly in today’s world. We had reassurances from the Gaming Control Board that they would be studying this carefully, keeping a close eye on it, a tight rein on it, and they would be putting in place regulations that would protect children and would make this process operate in a way that would meet Nevada’s gaming standards should the federal government allow it be put in place.

    Senator James:

    Thank you, Madam President. I appreciate the remarks of the Minority Leader and what she has just said and the way in which she speaks for her caucus. It is correct that the Internet gaming bill which is the one included in this amendment is the one, that was fully heard, debated, discussed, analyzed, with the public invited from the north and the south of the State and the rural areas to discuss it.

    As you know, I am a lawyer, and in practicing law, I learned how to speak to make my arguments to a court. In doing that, there is a process by which one side of the case stands up and they can say whatever they want within the decorum of the courtroom about the case and make their points as well and as fervently as they can to the judge or the jury. Then the other side stands up, and they do the same thing. They can say whatever they wish. Sometimes there is a lot of rhetoric and other things added to try to make your point as emphatically as possible, but in a courtroom, what matters is the decision. It is the decision of either the court or the jury. What is said in that decision is what matters. It is what matters to the parties in the case. It is what matters in the outcome.

    Unfortunately, I learned early on in this process that sometimes the outcome, the decision, isn’t the only thing that matters. Because I realized that after being here a few years, you could stand on this floor and say anything, no matter how incorrect, no matter how far off the mark it really is, as long as it sounds good. Maybe it has some pithy ring to it, and it will become a life of its own. On this bill, unfortunately, that is what we have heard. We have heard about the fact that there was no public debate of this measure. Every member of the House knows, and specifically the members of the Judiciary Committee know, that we had a lot of public debate. We had a hearing. We heard from the Gaming Control Board. We heard from the industry. We heard arguments between people who wanted to restrict this further than this bill does. This bill was a compromise with those who wanted to have it in certain counties with certain people. This bill makes it clear that in some of the rural counties and smaller areas, you can have a smaller investment, and you can still have Internet gaming.

    The remark was made that no amendments were allowed to this. I do not think that is true. I do not remember any amendments being proposed. In the Judiciary Committee any member has the ability to make a motion, to come forth with an amendment, to offer an amendment to the committee. If my recollection is correct, the committee did not receive or reject any amendments of the nature that were discussed by the previous speaker. The policy set forth in this bill regards the investment in Nevada to establish an Internet gaming company that would be regulated by Nevada. It was a well thought out policy, and it is one that is going to benefit our State. I heard mention of bartenders, waitresses and maids. That is whom it would benefit along with those who would invest in the gaming industry. It is going to benefit those people who work in the gaming industry.

    We have in Nevada a franchise. We used to have a monopoly on gaming. We do not have a monopoly on gaming any longer. There is gaming in 49 states, I think, gaming of various degrees. We haven’t got a monopoly, but what we still do have is a franchise. We are the gaming state. We are the State that has the most sophisticated, the best gaming controls in the country starting back to the modern area of gaming regulations with Governor Grant Sawyer up to today. We have the best gaming regulatory system in the world. As Internet gaming becomes something that is prevalent, something that other countries are going to be entertaining, where people can sit in one part of the world and gamble with a company that has a website located in another part of the world, it is important for Nevada to see what that is going to do for the future of its economy.

    This bill says, that if you want to take advantage of the best gaming regulatory body and be able to assure those people who might be coming to your website to gamble that they are gambling with an honest company, with someone who has high integrity, then you can come to Nevada under certain conditions. Those conditions are that you invest in our State, in the people who live here and in the people who work here. That is what this bill insures. It insures that the gaming regulatory powers of Nevada will not be sold to the world at large with no return investment in Nevada. That is why this is a good policy. It is a good policy that has been fully and publicly debated with respect, as I indicated previously, to the various concerns and machinations that resulted in the other bill dying and this manifesting itself in a conference report. Nevertheless, what you have before you is what has gone through the entire legislative process through several committee hearings and now through a bipartisan conference committee that has on it both the Chairs of the Senate and Assembly Judiciary Committees. This is something that is a good policy and is fully aired. It is remarkable to stand on the floor and fully debate your views on something and say there hasn’t been full debate. But in this, we have had full debate, and we are also going to have a roll call vote. This has been fully discussed and made available for both the public and others to determine what is happening and what sort of policy is being considered and implemented.

    Senator McGinness:

    Thank you, Madam President. There was debate. I was concerned about the rural areas not being involved in this, and the Chairman of Judiciary mentioned it briefly, but if you look on page 4 of the amendment under paragraph (c) it talks about in all other counties. It does give opportunity for those smaller gaming establishments and the small counties to get into this.

    Senator Neal:

    Madam President, you understand when things like this have been greased and are going to slip through, but I have to take exception to some of the remarks that have been made by the Judiciary Chairman. Public policy is not made by a committee, it is recommended by committee. Policy is made on the floor of this House and on the floor of the next House. I do not think we have reached a point—yet, at least I hope not, that whenever a committee says something that is it; that is the law, and we cannot have any suggestion that can be offered on the floor of the Senate. It seems to be what is being said here is that once something has been handled in committee, no one else matters. No one else can offer any suggestions or amendments to what the committee has done. The committee is appointed by the Legislature. It is our duty here to make the public policy. We come from various areas, various backgrounds, and we have to have an opportunity to offer what we understand about certain issues, how those issues should go into law and how we should participate in what the public, we represent, should think about those issues. We have not had the opportunity on this floor to offer those amendments, and I disagree with the Chairman of the Judiciary Committee on that issue.

    Senator Porter:

    Thank you, Madam President. As I listened with interest this morning, I brought forward some of my notes from the committee hearing on the original bill which, I think, was Assembly Bill No. 578. I would like to share some of those comments that I made in committee, this morning. A vote for this bill is not a vote for Internet gaming. It is a vote for a coherent state policy with respect to Internet gaming. It may be that the study will determine that Internet gaming is not right for the Nevada gaming industry because the law and the status of technology will not meet the stringent criteria established in the bill. We talked at length about the impact of technology on business throughout the world. Technology is now driving our decisions. If, in fact, our criterion is not stringent enough, there will be no Internet gaming, and the decision will be based on solid comprehensive evidence. Maybe the study will determine that Internet gaming is right for Nevada, and its legislative criteria could be satisfied. If so, there will be Internet gaming governed by regulations based on a solid, comprehensive evidence. The State’s interest is served in both cases. I have long been intrigued by Internet gaming as it impacts technology around the world, but I also shared in committee my grave concerns as to the impact on individuals and how we would implement regulations. After spending some time in committee and doing research prior to the meeting, there are really two facts that I found. First, the continual change in the Internet gaming sector is so rapid that its dimensions and character may be different when we meet next session. It is not just gaming. It is other technology. It is going to be difficult to recognize those changes. For that reason, the discretion that was in Assembly Bill No. 578, which is now the amendment to Assembly Bill No. 466, affords the Nevada Gaming Commission the appropriate and necessary tools to do this job. Second, although interactive gaming may hold great economic promise, and we talked at length about that in committee for the industry and the State Treasury, we must be concerned about its potential to cause damage to our impeccable record around the world.

    We talked at length about what is happening around the world. This is going to cause international scrutiny, and the first Internet casinos to operate pursuant to our Nevada licenses must operate properly. If there is a misstep, omission or a default, they will be magnified and widely publicized around the world. This Legislature and Nevada’s reputation is on the line. That is why we are asking that our professionals look at the regulations. Nevada’s first Internet gaming operators should be licensees that have established long records, and I believe that has been covered so I won’t go into the rest of my testimony. I believe this is the right thing to do.

remarks from the floor

    Senator James requested that his remarks be entered in the Journal.

    Thank you, Madam President. Senate Bill No. 551 was a bill passed by this House and sent to the Governor. It has gone through conference. It regards Internet crimes. Section 5 of that bill deals with the selling of tobacco products over the Internet. The question was raised as to whether that bill appropriately sets out the procedures to determine if the person who is buying the tobacco products is over 18 years of age. The Attorney General, Frankie Sue Del Papa, through one of her deputies, John Albrecht, has written a letter to clarify those provisions. Thinking that is adequate, I would request that the letter be placed into the Journal for this Legislative Day.

June 4, 2001

RE: Section 5, Senate Bill No. 551

To Whom it May Concern:

    We have been asked to explain the requirement in Section 5 of Senate Bill No. 551 requiring a policy for ensuring that the recipient signing for tobacco products be over 18 years of age. This explanation generally assumes that the person selling or shipping the tobacco products has a process to validate the age of the individual ordering the product as over 18 years of age.

    Although the specific components of a “method for ensuring that the person who deliver such items obtains the signature of a person who is over the age of 18 years when delivering the items” may vary, generally we would look for the following as acceptable under the language of this legislation:

    A)  The individual receiving and signing for the product is the specific individual who placed the order under circumstances which have validated his or her age as over 18; or

    B)  Another individual residing at or otherwise responsible for deliveries at the address specified in the order receives the delivery and signs for the delivery, if the individual delivering the product is reasonably assured, visually or otherwise, that the individual signing for the delivery is over the age of 18.

    Of course, this is only a general explanation of components which might be acceptable, depending on the related specifics of the system or method of delivery which may make them unacceptable, and other situations or systems may be acceptable to us after we have had the opportunity to review the specifics of any alternative policy submitted to us for our review.

Cordially,

Frankie Sue Del Papa

    Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 54—Commending the students and teachers at Aggie Roberts Elementary School and all other school classes that have proposed legislation and encouraging their continued participation in the legislative process.

    Whereas, Penny Bichsel, fourth grade teacher at Aggie Roberts Elementary School in Henderson, in teaching her students about the legislative process, sought to encourage her students to feel that every person can be a part of that process; and

    Whereas, In learning about Nevada history and state government, the students decided to request the Nevada Legislature to make the mustang another symbol for the State of Nevada because they believe the mustang, with its beauty and mystique, embodies the true spirit of Nevada history; and

    Whereas, The students contacted Nevada Legislators through letters, phone calls and electronic mail, impressing the Legislators with their knowledge of the history and present circumstances of the mustang; and

    Whereas, The students gained support from students of other schools and collected over 1,000 signatures from residents who support the concept of the mustang being named as the second state animal, the desert bighorn sheep being the first; and

    Whereas, The students of Mrs. Bichsel’s class, after much research using the Internet, reading books and viewing history films about the mustang, were instrumental in having Assembly Bill No. 219 introduced in the 71st session of the Legislature; and

    Whereas, These students are representative of the many fine young people in our state who take an active interest in their government and who are on the way to becoming responsible adults; now, therefore, be it

    Resolved by the Senate of the State of Nevada, the Assembly Concurring, That the members of the 71st session of the Nevada Legislature commend these students for their hard work and determination which resulted in a bill being introduced before the Legislature and encourage other young people to follow their example; and be it further

    Resolved, That the members of this body recognize that there are many students in schools throughout this state who are active and concerned citizens, and their continued participation in the legislative process is encouraged; and be it further

    Resolved, That the residents of this state are proud to be represented by young people who are learning that they can be an important part of making a difference in their state and in their country; and be it further

    Resolved, That the participation of these conscientious students reminds us it is of critical importance that we encourage all Nevadans to participate in the democratic process to ensure that the resulting public policies are truly representative of all Nevadans; and be it further

    Resolved, That the Secretary of the Senate prepare and transmit a copy of this resolution to Mrs. Bichsel and the fourth grade students of Aggie Roberts Elementary School.

    Senator O'Donnell moved the adoption of the resolution.

    Remarks by Senator O'Donnell.

    Senator O'Donnell requested that his remarks be entered in the Journal.

    Thank you, Madam President. The students from Aggie Roberts Elementary School have done a very good job and have gone well beyond the call of duty to try and get their bill passed. However, with this late hour and due to the fact we have conference committees on other issues, it does not seem we are going to make time to deliberate this issue, but I did want to put this Senate Concurrent Resolution No. 54 in so that the children know that we appreciate their cooperation and their interest in the legislative process. We will send Senate Concurrent
Resolution No. 54 to the school as well as the teacher. Each student in that classroom will receive a copy of this resolution.
