Relating to the duration of a bingo occasion.
No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
HB 882 would extend the allowable duration of bingo sessions conducted by bingo licensees from four to six hours.
Texas Action supports HB 882 for promoting the principles of individual liberty and limited government. Bingo is incredibly over-regulated in Texas, and any steps taken to deregulate or lighten the regulatory burden on bingo and allow greater individual freedom are desirable. The state should seek to do as much as it can to repeal burdensome bingo regulations.
