Attached are two documents. One is the revised Senate tax bill being introduced that includes relief for charitable gaming. We thank Senator Chamberlain for keeping us in his bill. We understand the financial stress that the state now finds itself in, but take this as a recognition that charities are paying up to seven times what a for profit business pays. If enacted we would still be paying up to six times what a for profit business pays. Helping to keep charities paying into the state coffers makes good business sense for the state.
The second is a policy bill submitted by the Gambling Control Board to the House Commerce committee that addresses concerns due to the state wide shut down. We appreciate the GCB listening to ACM regarding our concerns and including several of our requests.
