Senate Bill 311 as introduced would establish violations and criminal penalties related to the unlawful activity associated with casino-style games and sports wagering and the operation, promotion or playing of an unlawful lottery authorized pursuant to the constitutional amendment, proposed by Senate Bill 214 of the 2021 Regular Session, if ratified. This could increase receipts to the State General Fund from fines; increase receipts to the State General Fund, county general funds and other funds to which court costs are deposited; and could increase the obligations of the State General Fund, district attorneys, the Bureau of Pardons and Paroles, the Department of Corrections, and community correction programs by an undetermined amount dependent upon the number of persons charged with and convicted of the offenses provided by this bill and the penalties imposed.
