Representatives Angela Witwer (D-District 71) and John Chirkun (D-District 22) introduced on  February 13, 2019, two bills for the 2018-2019 legislative session proposing charitable gaming revisions.  The bills collectively serve to modify the Millionaire Parties hosted by charitable organizations.

The content in the two bills includes an overhaul of the licensure of vendors and suppliers, requirements for the presence and participation of charitable organization representatives and members, increasing the daily dollar limit on games, and contains several other refinements.  Rep. Witwer’s bill (HB 4172) and Rep. Chirkun’s bill (HB 4173) are identical to legislation introduced and passed in the 2017-2018 legislative session (SB 35 and HB 4084) that overwhelmingly passed both the House and the Senate before being vetoed by former Governor Rick Snyder in late December before he left office.  Both bills were referred to the Committee on Regulatory Reform.
