AN  ACT  CONCERNING  LICENSING  EXEMPTIONS  BY THE
DIVISION OF SPECIAL REVENUE AND THE GAMING  POLICY
BOARD.


    Be  it  enacted  by  the  Senate  and House of
Representatives in General Assembly convened:
    Subsection   (n)  of  section  12-574  of  the
general statutes is repealed and the following  is
substituted in lieu thereof:
    (n)  The  appropriate licensing authority may,
on its own motion or upon application, exempt  any
person or business organization from the licensing
requirements of this chapter or some or all of the
disclosure  requirements  of  chapter 226b, [. The
appropriate licensing  authority,  in  making  its
determination,    shall   consider   whether   the
applicant  seeking  the  exemption  will  exercise
control  in or over an activity which is ancillary
to and  not  an  integral  part  of  any  activity
authorized   under   this  chapter]  PROVIDED  THE
APPLICANT DOES NOT EXERCISE CONTROL IN OR OVER  AN
INTEGRAL  PART OF ANY ACTIVITY WHICH IS AUTHORIZED
UNDER THIS CHAPTER. The burden of proving that  an
exemption  should be granted rests solely with the
applicant.  The  licensing  authority  making  the
determination  may limit or condition the terms of
an  exemption  and  such  determination  shall  be
final.
