"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.
