Commenter: William Jordan, Fraternal Order of the Eagles & Veterans of Foreign Wars


Y'all are straight up robbing non-profits (e.g. Veterans of Foreign Wars, Fraternal Order of the Eagles, etc.). The proposed rate of 40% should only be for for-profit casinos and other companies or organizations.

When you take that amount away from non-profits, you take away from the community and the people that help the community. Why would you want to hurt the community that you live in?

Unlike others who suggest 15%-20%, I suggest 0%-5% for at least non-profit organizations. Again, these are organizations that HELP OUR COMMUNITY FOR NON-PROFIT.
