Cuomo Proposes New Chairitable Gaming Rules

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced a proposal to modernize laws to make it easier for charitable organizations to raise funds through gaming, including raffles, bell jar and other types of games.

The proposal consolidates a number of charitable gaming statutes from various sections of law, removing duplicative language to create a single set of laws.

Governor Cuomo said these reforms will modernize our laws, remove burdensome obstacles and allow non-profits to raise more funds.
