The operation of video draw poker devices shall not be affected if the parish boundaries are changed, established, or taxed subsequent to the election provided for in R.S. 18:1300.21 via the statutory process provided for in R.S. 50:221 et seq., R.S 33:141 et seq., annexation or in any other manner for any reason.

The prohibition on the operation of video draw poker devices shall not be affected if the parish boundaries are changed, established, or taxed subsequent to the election provided for in R.S. 18:1300.21 via the statutory process provided for in R.S. 50:221 et seq., R.S 33:141 et seq., annexation or in any other manner for any reason.
