Gambling addiction. Gambling: Internet Fantasy Sports Game Protection Act. Existing law, the Gambling Control Act, provides for the licensure and regulation of various legalized gambling activities and establishments by the California Gambling Control Commission and the investigation and enforcement of those activities and establishments by the Department of Justice. Existing law prohibits a person, whether or not for gain, hire, or reward, from making a betting pool or placing a bet or wager on the result of any contest or event, including a sporting event, as specified. This bill would enact the Internet Fantasy Sports Games Consumer Protection Act, which would require a person or entity to apply for, and receive, a license from the department prior to offering an Internet fantasy sports game for play in California. The bill would require the department to issue a license to a person or entity that applies for a license if the person or entity satisfies specified requirements, including, among others, that the applicant is of good character, honesty, and
2 AB integrity. The bill would also require a person to register with a licensed operator prior to participating in an Internet fantasy sports game on an authorized Internet Web site, as those terms are defined. The bill would require a licensed operator, among other things, to ensure that a registered player is eligible to play on an authorized Internet Web site, and to implement appropriate data security standards to prevent access by a person whose age and location have not been verified. The bill would authorize the department to assess a civil penalty against a licensed operator that violates these provisions according to a specified schedule depending on the number of violations. The bill would require the department to develop an online self-exclusion form on or before July 1, 2017, and to deliver that form to each licensed operator, and would require each licensed operator to make that form available to its registered players. The bill would require a licensed operator to pay an annual regulatory fee, for deposit into the Fantasy Sports Fund, which the bill would establish in the State Treasury. The bill would continuously appropriate the Fantasy Sports Fund to the department for the reasonable costs of license oversight, consumer protection, state regulation, and other purposes related to the bill. The bill would require each licensed operator to pay a one-time license fee into the General Fund in an unspecified amount. The license fee would be credited against quarterly fees equivalent to an unspecified percentage of the licensed operator s gross income that is attributable to the operation of an authorized Internet Web site in California. The bill would make proprietary information provided by a licensed operator confidential in order to protect the licensed operator and to protect the security of an authorized Internet Web site. The bill would also prohibit a city, county, or city and county from regulating, taxing, or entering into a contract with respect to, any matter governed to the bill s provisions, and would make conforming changes. Existing constitutional provisions require that a statute that limits the right of access to the meetings of public bodies or the writings of public officials and agencies be adopted with findings demonstrating the interest protected by the limitation and the need for protecting that interest. This bill would make legislative findings to that effect. This bill would include a change in state statute that would result in a taxpayer paying a higher tax within the meaning of Section 3 of Article
3 3 AB 1437 XIIIA of the California Constitution, and thus would require for passage the approval of 2 3 of the membership of each house of the Legislature. Existing law, the Gambling Control Act, provides for the licensure and regulation of various legalized gambling activities and establishments by the California Gambling Control Commission and the investigation and enforcement of those activities and establishments by the Department of Justice. Existing law establishes the Gambling Control Fund within the State Treasury for the receipt and deposit of fees and revenue collected pursuant to the act. Under the act, specified licensing fees are required to be paid for the issuance or renewal of a state gambling license, as specified. Existing law requires each licensee to pay an additional $100 for each table for which it is licensed to the State Department of Public Health for deposit in the Gambling Addiction Program Fund, and requires these funds to be available, upon appropriation by the Legislature, to community-based organizations that directly provide aid and assistance to those persons with a gambling addiction problem. This bill would instead require each licensee to pay an additional $150 for each table for which it is licensed to the State Department of Public Health for deposit in the Gambling Addiction Program Fund. This bill would declare that it is to take effect immediately as an urgency statute. Vote: 2 3. Appropriation: no yes. Fiscal committee: no yes. State-mandated local program: no.

Pursuant to that constitutional provision, line 32 the Legislature makes the following findings to demonstrate the line 33 interest protected by this limitation and the need for protecting line 34 that interest: line 35 The limitations on the people s right of access set forth in this line 36 chapter are necessary to protect the privacy and integrity of line 37 information submitted by registered players as well as the line 38 proprietary information of the license applicants and licensed line 39 operators.
14 AB line 1 SECTION 1. Section of the Business and Professions line 2 Code is amended to read: line In addition to those fees required pursuant to Section line , each licensee shall pay an additional one hundred fifty line 5 dollars ($150) for each table for which it is licensed to the State line 6 Department of Public Health for deposit in the Gambling Addiction line 7 Program Fund, which is hereby established to benefit those who line 8 have a gambling addiction problem.
