+ 205 CMR 16.00: Procedures for the Approval of a Simulcast-Only Facility: The proposed regulation would govern the process by which the Commission receives, reviews, and evaluates requests for approval by a licensed simulcast entity to simulcast at a new location. The regulation is particularly concerned with input from the community or communities where the proposed facility will be located.

Regulations Relating to Sports Wagering

+ 205 CMR 221.00: Sports Wagering License: This regulation is being amended to fix an apparent conflict between 205 CMR 221.01(1) and (2) that would require operators requesting a renewal of their temporary license to pay $1,000,000 upon requesting the renewed license, and another $1,000,000 within 30 days after receiving it. This revision clarifies that the operator needs to submit the $1,000,000 fee only once.

+ 205 CMR 238.12: Reserve Requirement
