Your Source For Michigan Gaming News

Since 1997, the Michigan Gaming website has been a comprehensive resource regarding gaming in the state of Michigan. This site is an RMC Ventures, LLC publication, with contributions by the original creators of the site, Attorney David Waddell and Gaming Analyst Robert Russell, and additional contributions by Attorney J.J. Burchman.

Mr. Waddell,  Mr. Russell and Mr. Burchman are also associated with Regulatory Management Counselors, P.C., which proactively assists clients in managing regulatory issues in an effort to maximize company profits and avoid legal problems.

Last week the MGCB publicly released its proposed revisions and modifications to its administrative rules.  The rules were last modified in 2000.   Many of the changes incorporate practices that were instituted by MGCB board resolutions and prior MGCB practice.

In general, the rule changes remove in several places specific requirements for processes, applications and other requirements in favor of simply stating that the forms and applications must contain information required by the board.  They also revise requirements for electronic gaming devices and modify the appeal process for license applications and renewals, including the effective date of certain adverse decisions by the MGCB.  Finally, the MGCB revisions contain several changes to the regulations governing transfers of ownership of casino and supplier licensees.

Th MGCB has indicated a willingness to receive both informal and formal comments on the rule changes.  Under Michigan administrative rule-making procedures, the MGCB must schedule a public meeting to discuss and approve the proposed rule changes.  To date, a public hearing has not been scheduled.
