Charitable Gaming Regulations Under Development

The Fraternal Order of Eagles is a charitable organization that gives hundreds of thousands of dollars nationwide year after year.  We help people in all walks of life that are suffering from debilitating illnesses, children under duress, and people suffering from national disasters, just to name a few.  In order to accomplish this, we need to employ good reliable people to work in our Aeries where our gaming machines are in play and our fund raisers are done.  We have a lot of volunteers, but cannot replace our workers.  We NEED  for the 40% to be cut to a more reasonable amount.....10% or 15%  NO MORE.  

This organization and others like them have been helping our U S Citizens for more than 100 years and do not need to be regulated out of business.  If this regulation is not changed, you will see many of our Aeries closed and the American people will be the ones to suffer for it.

Please MAKE A CHANGE and in turn MAKE A DIFFERENCE in the lives of so many.
