     Amend KRS 238.550 to increase the reporting requirement for donated prizes; amend KRS 238.560 to require a letter of warning for not willful violations; amend KRS 238.570 to provide for a fee adjustment process.

     SFA (1, D. Boswell) - Establish a graduated reporting schedule based on annual gross receipts and type of gaming conducted; require, as part of that schedule, that all licensed charitable organizations that have annual gross receipts of less than $200,000 and that do not have weekly bingo sessions report to the office annually at a time determined by the office; require all other licensed charitable organizations to submit reports to the office at least quarterly at such times as established in administrative regulations; set out a procedure by which the advisory committee's comments are included when administrative regulations are filed under the procedures established in KRS Chapter 13A; replace three of the at-large members on the advisory commission with one representative from the veterans' organizations, one representative form volunteer firefighters' organizations, and one representative from Catholic organizations; permit an organization to request a change in the date, time, or location of a charitable gaming event by mail, electronic mail, or facsimile; require the licensee to include a lease with the submission; require the office to accept or deny the request for the change within 10 days; permit a charitable organization to hold a charity fundraising event, including a special limited charity fundraising event, in a county other than that in which the organization has its principal place of business; permit a charity fundraising event to be held at licensee's conventions.

     CCR - Cannot agree.

     FCCR - Retain original provisions of HCS and SFA 1 with two changes, clarify that licensees with annual gross receipts of $200,0000 or less are exempt from quarterly reporting requirements, and clarify that a charity fundraising event may be held at a charitable gaming licensee's convention rather than any gaming licensee's convention.
