An increase in the gaming industry.

CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Nevada lawmakers are considering a bill that tightens the restrictions on the Silver State's smaller gambling operators to ensure they are not competition to the larger casinos.

Democratic Assembly Majority Leader William Horne of Las Vegas presented AB360 on Monday to members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee.

The bill would require businesses with restricted gambling licenses to have at least 2,500 square feet of space available for patrons and a restaurant open at least 12 hours per day. At least eight of the 15 slot machines allowed must be embedded in a permanent bar.

Supports of the bill say it clearly draws a line between bigger casinos paying higher taxes and the smaller establishments.

But opponents contend it stifles their ability for growth and adaptation to future evolutions in gambling.
