Current Rulemaking Activity

Subject: Major League Sports Raffle Program

The Legislature enacted and the Governor signed Senate Bill (SB) 549 (Chapter 509, Statutes of 2015), effective January 1, 2016. SB 549 added section 320.6 to the Penal Code, authorizing major league sports raffles at a home game conducted by an eligible organization, as defined. Subdivision (o)(7) of section 320.6 of the Penal Code authorizes the Department to promulgate by June 1, 2016, regulations necessary to effectuate the statute, including emergency regulations, pursuant to the Administrative Procedures Act.

The Bureau has drafted proposed regulations to implement the provisions of the newly enacted statute. These proposed regulations would add Article 8 to Title 11, Division 3, Chapter 1 of the California Code of Regulations to comply with SB 549 by adopting regulations to implement the major league sports raffles, including implementing a registration program for eligible organizations, affiliated persons of eligible organizations, and manufacturers and distributors of raffle-related products or services. The proposed regulations also include the forms required of the regulated community to comply with the various aspects of the regulation.

The Bureau has drafted the proposed regulations to be enacted with an emergency designation as the failure to provide charitable organizations an immediate opportunity to benefit from the implementation of the charitable raffle program that sunsets on December 31, 2018, would irreparably harm eligible charities throughout the State of California.
