NH House panel considers charity table game rules

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) -- The House's tax writing committee is considering a bill laying out new rules for table games operated in the name of New Hampshire charities.

The Ways and Means Committee holds a hearing Tuesday afternoon on the bill that is the product of a study by a commission that met over the summer and fall to develop regulations for a casino.

While gathering information for its proposal on a casino, the New Hampshire Gaming Regulatory Oversight Authority found that rules governing table games for charities were inadequate.

New Hampshire has allowed the mini-casino operations since 1977 with few limits other than on the size of the bet and the maximum days a charity can sponsor an event. A law change in 2006 allowed private operators to run the games seven-day-a-week.
