Senate Bill 311 as passed the Senate would establish or amend various violations and criminal penalties related to unlawful gaming activity and prohibit certain campaign contributions and solicitations, upon the ratification of the constitutional amendment, proposed by Senate Bill 319 of the 2021 Regular Session. 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.
