ROTA, Northern Mariana Islands (January 4, 1999 - CNMI News On-Line)---Lawmakers from Rota have followed their colleagues from Saipan by enacting a local law to impose a $2,000 annual local license fee on poker and slot machines, in addition to fees imposed by the CNMI government.

Rota Local Law 11-1 was approved by acting Governor Jesus R. Sablan on Wednesday.

The additional fee will apply only to gambling machines in Rota and the revenues to be collected would be spent on projects on the island.

The imposition of additional fees on gambling machines followed the lifting of the ceiling on the number of gambling machines permitted in the Commonwealth.
