That portion is equal to half of the host municipality's 2003-04 general fund budget; however, the state House passed a bill last week that would up the ante for small municipalities where a casino is proposed.

"An amendment to Senate Bill 862 would essentially remove the cap that limits gaming revenue to 50 percent of smaller municipalities' general fund budget. Under the amendment, those municipalities would receive 2 percent of the casino's gross revenue or $10 million, whichever figure is higher. The 148-page bill must now be sent back to the Senate for reconsideration.

"Limerick's general fund budget for 2004 was $5.4 million, which, under the original bill, would have meant that Limerick would receive about $2.7 million. The amended bill would add an additional $7.3 million to township coffers…"
