Concerning the codification of executive orders pertaining to limited gaming, and, in connection therewith, allowing license applicants to submit fingerprints after the initial submission of an application, eliminating the statutory limit on the number of players permitted in the game of blackjack, and allowing a casino operator to divide its lawful gaming space into more than two noncontiguous spaces.

Bill Summary



By executive order, to allow for social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the governor:

  • Suspended the operation of statutes prohibiting more than 7 players in the game of blackjack;
  • Suspended the operation of statutes limiting a casino operator to 2 noncontiguous gaming areas within the casino; and
  • Eliminated the requirement that an applicant for a limited gaming or sports betting license submit fingerprints simultaneously with the license application for purposes of conducting a fingerprint-based criminal history record check, instead allowing the applicant to submit fingerprints as a supplement to the application.


The act codifies all 3 of these changes but specifies that final action on a license application cannot be taken until the results of the fingerprint-based criminal history record check are received.

(Note: This summary applies to this bill as enacted.)
