Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:

SECTION 1. Section 177A of chapter 140 of the General Laws, as appearing in the 2004 Official Edition, is hereby amended by adding the following subsection:-

(9) Sections 2 to 4, inclusive, of chapter 136 shall not apply to automatic amusement devices licensed under this section.

SECTION 2. This act shall take effect as of December 31, 2005.
