            A. An owner or lessor of a qualified truck stop facility may lease or sublease any restaurant, convenience store, fuel facility, or any other business operation located on the premises of the qualified truck stop facility to another person, provided that such person executes a written lease which contains a requirement that the lessee or sublessee comply with the laws and regulations which govern the operation of video draw poker devices. If such lease or sublease is granted, the owner or lessor of such qualified truck stop facility shall maintain ultimate supervision and control of his entire truck stop premise. No such lessee or sublessee shall be required to meet suitability requirements unless he receives, as a result of the lease, any video draw poker device operation revenue or unless he exercises some management or control over video draw poker devices. Any violation of the laws and regulations which govern the operation of video draw poker devices by such lessee or sublessee shall be considered a violation by the licensee.

            B. No financial lending institution or pawnshop shall be located on the premises of a qualified truck stop facility. Nothing herein shall prohibit the placement of automatic teller machines on the premises of a qualified truck stop.

            C. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the owner or lessor of a qualified truck stop facility, except for a qualified truck stop facility located in Orleans Parish, may close the restaurant on the premises of the qualified truck stop facility on Sundays or during any other legal holiday as defined in R.S. 1:55(B)(1)(a).
