On January 18, 2017, Senator Rick Jones (R-Grand Ledge) introduced Senate Bill No. 0035 (SB 0035) which seeks to amend the “Traxler-McCauley-Law-Bowman Bingo Act” and to overhaul the Bingo Act’s provisions regulation charitable millionaire parties held within the state. Notably, a similar bill previously passed the Senate on December 9, 2015 but expired at the end of the legislative session.

On February 2, 2017, the Michigan Senate Regulatory Reform Committee favorably reported out of committee Substitute 1 to Senate Bill No. 0035 (SB 0035). Among other minor changes, the substitute inserts a provision saying that a millionaire party licensee may include charity games or numeral games, but that those games will remain supervised by the Michigan Lottery. Millionaire party licenses are granted by the Michigan Gaming Control Board.
