Legislation Tracking

AB 2347

Gloria (D)History

The California Constitution authorizes the Legislature to amend the percentage of gross receipts required to be dedicated to beneficial or charitable purposes by a statute passed by a 2/3 vote of each house of the Legislature. Current statutory law generally regulates raffles conducted by eligible organizations for beneficial or charitable purposes. Current statutory law requires the Department of Justice to administer and enforce those provisions. This bill would decrease the percentage of gross receipts from charitable raffles required to go to beneficial or charitable purposes from 90% to 50% for a raffle that generates gross ticket sale receipts less than $1000, conducted by an eligible organization whose gross ticket sale receipts do not exceed $5000 for all raffles in a calendar year.
