Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

This fiscal note was prepared to mirror the fiscal note filed for SB281. In theory the reallocation of video lottery terminals will generate more revenue from limited video lottery gaming for the State, however, we cannot assume this as there is no way to predict the results because of so many variables. Therefore, an estimate of revenue from the bid fees and additional license/permit fees will be used to project the revenues from HB3106.

1. Estmated Total Cost 0 0 0

2. Estimated Total Revenues 0 5,454,108 1,188,000

Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):

No new employees would be required to conduct the rebid or issue additional licenses[permits] so there is no cost to the State. As the bill requires the rebid to be conducted by September 1, 2017, revenues for permits would be collected in FY18. License/Permit fees will be collected annually upon full implementation. Estimates were prepared as follows: Total Permits Authorized: 9000 Total Permits Bid in 2010 [active]: 7812 Total Permits Available for Bid: 1188 Average Bid Per Permit [10 year cycle]: $9,182 For Half Bid Period [halfway through 10 years]: $4,591 Estimate Bid Fees [FY18]: $5,454,108 Additional Permit Fees annually [full implementation]: $1,188,000


Note: Testimony was provided by the Lottery before the House Finance Committee that a reasonable estimate of revenues from the reallocation of terminals is projected to be around $10M-$12M, once fully implemented. Factors affecting when full implementation may occur vary, and the Lottery anticipates a staggered roll out over the course of the next fiscal year, thus such estimates are not detailed in the Fiscal Note Detail section of this form.
