RIBLE LEGISLATION REMOVING LICENSE REQUIREMENT
FOR RECREATIONAL BINGO SIGNED INTO LAW
Bipartisan legislation sponsored by Assembly Republican Conference Leader Dave Rible permitting bingo games conducted solely for recreation or amusement by any person or organization without the need to obtain licensure under the “Bingo Licensing Law” was signed into law today by Gov. Chris Christie.
“Groups such as senior citizens’ associations or clubs that are using bingo as a means of entertainment will be exempt from the expense of obtaining a license as currently prescribed,” said Rible, R-Monmouth and Ocean. “For these types of groups, bingo is a form of amusement and a medium for social interaction. Removing the licensure requirement will help them eliminate a cost that should not be incurred considering their purpose is to entertain, rather than a motivation for profit.”
Under Rible’s bill, A-1351, a bingo game may only be conducted without licensure provided that: no player furnishes anything of value for the opportunity to participate; the prizes awarded are nominal; and no person is compensated for managing or assisting in running the game.

"As soon as you step into the lake on foot or in a boat, you're in the state's domain. I feel bad for the snake, and I hope it gets rescued before it dies when it gets cold. It didn't mean to get let out there. This snake should be one thing we can get together on and not worry about party affiliation. Unless the snake's a Democrat." - Republican Mount Arlington Mayor Arthur Ondish- PolitickerNJ
