Members of some military honor guards will be eligible for a larger stipend for their performances.

Effective Aug. 1, 2012, charitable gambling organizations will be authorized to pay a per diem stipend of up to $50 per person for military honor guard, color guard or “marching unit” performances. The stipend was previously capped at $35.

Under statute, stipends for military honor guards are among the lawful uses of gross profits from charitable gaming operations.

Rep. Bob Dettmer (R-Forest Lake) and Sen. Mike Parry (R-Waseca) are the sponsors.
