PHOENIX, AZ - Tomorrow at 10:30 am Governor Ducey will sign HB2109. This bipartisan legislation was sponsored by candidate for Governor, and current state representative, Aaron Lieberman.
HB2109 will streamline the state’s Bingo License process by cleaning up statutes that were not reflective of what was occurring in practice. The bill increases licenses' gross receipt thresholds and the cap on the amount of cash prizes payable by check. Currently, Bingo licenses represent specific kinds of nonprofit organizations that generate funds to support their activities in Arizona.
Representative Lieberman has been working on passing this legislation since the spring of 2020. His co-sponsors included two Republicans and one Democrat.
“Aaron came into the state legislature determined to solve problems and make life better for Arizonans,” said campaign manager Miguel Medrano, “HB2109 is just one example of the kind of common-sense legislation that Aaron has championed in the State House. We’re glad the Governor is signing this bill and we look forward to Aaron ushering many more bills into law when he becomes our next Governor,” he added.
