PURPOSE AND EFFECT: The purpose and effect will be to implement changes in the rules listed above to implement the newly amended provisions of Section 849.086, Florida Statutes. The amendments are the result of Senate Bill 622, which give an effective date of July 1, 2010 for Chapter 2010-170, Laws of Florida. Rules will also be updated and clarified to implement other provisions of Section 849.086, Florida Statutes.
SUBJECT AREA TO BE ADDRESSED: The recent amendments to Section 849.086, Florida Statutes, contained in Chapter 2010-170, Laws of Florida, will increase the operating hours of licensed cardrooms at pari-mutuel wagering facilities and significantly increase the amounts wagered on poker and dominoes conducted at those facilities. The amendments also provide for changes in licensing rules. Adjustments to these rules will be required because some provisions contained in the rules listed above are in conflict with the amended statute. A number of changes will also be required for accounting, security, and internal control issues created by the greater amount of money that will be wagered due to the amendments. The division will also consider changes in licensing rules allowed by the amendments. There is also a need to update and clarify some of the above-listed rules. Rule 61D-11.030, F.A.C., is being created and includes minimum accounting, internal control, and security requirements for cardroom vaults.
