Next week the senate republican majority will be together at a retreat to discuss issues and plans for the upcoming legislative session.
If you think that tax relief for licensed charitable gaming organizations needs to be on their agenda and your senator is a member of the republican majority, you need to let them know that right away.
To find out who your senator is or how to contact them, use this link https://www.gis.leg.mn/iMaps/districts/
Tell your senator what your organization paid in taxes and fees in FY2018. Tell them the percentage of what you had left after paying your expenses went to the state in taxes and fees.
Many of you are now working longer for the state than you are for your community and mission.
Tell them what more you would be able to do in your community if more of the money that you raised locally stayed local.
ACM is working to educate every legislator on how the licensed gaming charities in their respective districts fared in FY2018.
All of the education that we do here at ACM rings hollow with legislators if they are not hearing from the members of the organizations in their respective districts.
