A bill for an act
relating to gambling; authorizing director of the State Lottery to operate slot
machines at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport; proposing coding
for new law in Minnesota Statutes, chapter 349A.


Section 1.


(a) The director of the State Lottery shall lease a facility within any terminal of the
Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport for the purpose of operating slot machines.
The Metropolitan Airports Commission shall not unreasonably refuse to lease space in
the main terminal for this purpose. The director shall provide for the types of machines
to be operated. The director may contract with private vendors for goods and services,
consistent with the constitutional requirement that the facility be state operated. The
director may appoint personnel to operate the facility.

(b) A person who uses the machines must agree to be bound by the director's
procedures. The player acknowledges that the determination of winnings is subject to the
rules of the director, procedures established for that game, and any confidential or public
validation procedures established by the director for that game. No person under the age
of 18 years may play or win a prize from any game at the facility.

(c) No person may be admitted to the facility who does not possess a valid ticket
issued in the person's name by an airline making regularly scheduled flights in and out
of the airport, for a flight with a departure time not more than 12 hours after admission
to the facility, or for a flight that has arrived not more than 12 hours before admission
to the facility.

(d) The portion of the net proceeds from operation of the facility that is deposited in
the environment and natural resources trust fund must be appropriated for support of parks
and trails of statewide or regional significance.
