Use of proceeds

I am shocked with all that I have read. We as fraternal organizations like the Moose have been operating since the early 1900's. We have had many obstacles to overcome throughout the years. However, this one is going to be the biggest yet. All of our communities state wide are going to suffer because of this tax / use of proceeds. A lot of us will have to close our doors. With that being said. The local battered women's shelter will not receive money to help purchase clothes, toiletries and makeup to cover their tenants horrifying experiences. The local little league baseball team won't be able to go to the little league world series to compete. Countless other examples have been mentioned in other comments in this forum. Please consider reducing the amount of the percentage. Please find another solution that helps everyone. Please don't kill the fraternal organization.

Thank you for your time in this matter,

Chris Mcfaden
