RE-OPEN & RECOVER 
FROM COVID-19

 

This week, HB 670 & 368 will be heard in the Louisiana Senate. 

These bills are business specific bills and ARE NOT gaming related. 

 

These bills are important to business operations and COVID-19 recovery. 

 

HB 670 by Rep. Stefanski allows truck stops to operate under force

majeure as they recover from COVID-19. It also allows truck stops to make

repairs, maintenance and  renovations to existing facilities without having

to shut down their gaming. 

 

HB 368 by Rep. Mack allows truck stops to receive a waiver for fuel sales

requirements if certain conditions prevent them from meeting their

requirements. They must prove to the gaming control board that they

should receive such a waiver. 

Please ask your Legislators to support local business & local jobs as we attempt to recover from the detrimental effects of being shut down due to the coronavirus. 

 

Thank you for you help! 

For any questions, please contact the LVGA office. 

Best, 

Your friends at the LVGA

This year, the Louisiana Legislature is considering a bill that would legalize fantasy sports in Louisiana. The bill proposed by Representative Talbot, HB 459, seeks to legalize internet based fantasy sports betting. 

Internet based sports betting companies are out-of-state companies who DO NOT employe Louisiana residents, DO NOT own property in Louisiana and DO NOT contribute to Louisiana's economy. 

By restricting fantasy sports betting to Louisiana establishments with a 21 year age requirement to enter, thousands of bars, hundreds of truck stops, and many other Louisiana based businesses will benefit by attracting new customers who go there to place their bets resulting in an increase in patronage and business. 

Keeping fantasy sports betting in establishment only is a WIN for Louisiana businesses, a WIN for Louisiana employees, and a WIN For Louisiana! 

Help us to keep fantasy sports betting IN ESTABLISHMENT ONLY! 

Bring fantasy sports to your business!

LIMITING BETTING TO ESTABLISHMENTS HAS SEVERAL BENEFITS...  

Benefits Local Businesses

Fans wanting to bet on fantasy sports would have to bet at local bars, truck stops, and casinos bringing more business to those establishments. 

Benefits Service Industry Employees

More customers at local bars, truck stops and casinos gives employees the opportunity to make more money through tips from patrons.  

Prevents Underage Gaming 

Limiting fantasy sports betting to establishments with age restrictions prevents under age gaming.
