Lowering to 40% donations & Payroll proceeds

I am currently on the Board of Directors of Appomattox Moose Lodge 975. I am concern that the proposed changes to charitable gaming will have a negative effect to current operations . First of all increasing the amount required amount to donate from 10% to 40% will take away from from much needed funds to operate this Lodge. By not allowing payroll to come from the gaming account will require this Lodge to increase food and beverage prices, cut back hours worked by the staff, may require layoffs, and prevent scheduling entertainment for social events for our members. Raising prices and reducing social events will also effect the ability to maintain current membership sign new members. 

Please reconsider these changes.
