Video Poker Ban Signed Into Law
Following last week’s action by the House, the Senate approved legislation on Monday night to ban video poker. The Governor signed the bill into law on Tuesday. The new law requires machine owners or businesses to downsize from the current maximum of three machines to two machines by October 1, 2006, and from two machines to one machine by March 1, 2007. A complete ban of the machines will take effect on July 1, 2007.
