LOTTERIES. GAMBLING. INITIATIVE CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT. Requires the Legislature to provide for the regulation of gambling and lotteries and to authorize all cities and counties to provide for lotteries only for city and county use. Provides City of Adelanto in San Bernardino County and City of Clearlake in Lake County the local option of conducting various games of chance involving cards, dice, and other gambling devices within their boundaries. Establishes Public Gaming Control Commission to issue permits and exercise other powers pursuant to laws enacted by Legislature. Provides funds received by State from this activity shall be appropriated for public education. Summary of estimate by Legislative Analyst and Director of Finance of fiscal impact on state and local governments: There would be an indeterminate increase in state costs for regulation of the proposed gaming and lotteries. There would be a substantial increase in state revenues resulting from the permit fees for gaming. All funds received by the state from permit fees would be dedicated for public education expenditures. Therefore, the administrative costs would be borne by the General Fund. There would be an indeterminate increase in local costs for regulation of the proposed gaming and lottery systems. These local costs could be offset by a potentially major increase in local revenues from the local license fees and taxes authorized for gaming, and from the proceeds of local lotteries.
