Interested Persons Statement
Interested persons may submit comments, information or arguments concerning any of the rule proposals in this issue until the date indicated in the proposal. Submissions and any inquiries about submissions should be addressed to the agency officer specified for a particular proposal.
The required minimum period for comment concerning a proposal is 30 days. A proposing agency may extend the 30-day comment period to accommodate public hearings or to elicit greater public response to a proposed new rule or amendment. Most notices of proposal include a 60-day comment period, in order to qualify the notice for an exception to the rulemaking calendar requirements of N.J.S.A. 52:14B-3. An extended comment deadline will be noted in the heading of a proposal or appear in a subsequent notice in the Register.
At the close of the period for comments, the proposing agency may thereafter adopt a proposal, without change, or with changes not in violation of the rulemaking procedures at N.J.A.C. 1:30-6.3. The adoption becomes effective upon publication in the Register of a notice of adoption, unless otherwise indicated in the adoption notice. Promulgation in the New Jersey Register establishes a new or amended rule as an official part of the New Jersey Administrative Code.

The agency proposal follows:
A calendar raffle is a raffle in which the "ticket" that is purchased is a calendar with a specific number and prizes listed on different days. The qualified organization running the calendar raffle picks numbers on each day listed on the calendar. If a person's number is picked, he or she wins the prize that is listed on the calendar for that day. N.J.A.C. 13:47-8.21 requires that a calendar raffle award prizes for a period of at least three months. This rule requires the Legalized Games of Chance Control Commission (Commission) to deny applications for approval when qualified organizations wish to hold calendar raffles for less than three months. The Commission believes that applicants should be permitted to hold calendar raffles for shorter than three months, but believes that calendar raffles should be at least one month long, so that they still adhere to the structure of calendar raffles and do not become simple draw raffles. The Commission proposes to amend N.J.A.C. 13:47-8.21 so that calendar raffles will be at least one month long.
The Commission has determined that the comment period for this notice of proposal shall be 60 days; therefore, pursuant to N.J.A.C. 1:30-3.3(a)5, this notice is excepted from the rulemaking calendar requirement.
The Commission does not believe that this proposed amendment will have an impact on society.
The Commission does not believe that this proposed amendment will have an economic impact.
Federal Standards Statement
A Federal standards analysis is not required because the proposed amendment is governed by N.J.S.A. 5:8-6 and is not subject to any Federal requirements or standards.
The Commission does not believe that this proposed amendment will increase or decrease the number of jobs in New Jersey.
Agriculture Industry Impact
The Commission does not believe that this proposed amendment will have any impact on the agriculture industry in the State.
Regulatory Flexibility Statement
It is possible that some of the entities that hold calendar raffles could be considered "small businesses" under the Regulatory Flexibility Act (the Act), N.J.S.A. 52:14B-16 et seq. The proposed amendment will have no economic impact and will not require any entities to employ professional services. The proposed amendment does not impose any compliance, recordkeeping, or reporting requirements.
Housing Affordability Impact Analysis
The proposed amendment will have an insignificant impact on the affordability of housing in New Jersey and there is an extreme unlikelihood that the proposed amendment would evoke a change in the average costs associated with housing because the proposed amendment concerns calendar raffles.
Smart Growth Development Impact Analysis
The proposed amendment will have an insignificant impact on smart growth and there is an extreme unlikelihood that the proposed amendment would evoke a change in housing production in Planning Areas 1 or 2, or within designated centers, under the State Development and Redevelopment Plan in New Jersey because the proposed amendment concerns calendar raffles.
Racial and Ethnic Community Criminal Justice and Public Safety Impact
The Commission has evaluated this proposed amendment and determined that it will not have an impact on pretrial detention, sentencing, probation, or parole policies concerning adults and juveniles in the State. Accordingly, no further analysis is required.
