Electronic Gambling Machines

I am writing to express to you the absolute devastation that will be caused if you change the regulation to require our private charitable and community serving organizations to pay forward to charity 40% of the profit from the electronic gambling machines.  We all rely heavily on these profits to be able to continue to do business, but more importantly, it allows us to serve those in our community who need it the most.  It is our greatest fear that this new regulation, if approved, will force nearly every private organization to close the doors forever.  This would do a disservice to so many.  The people we serve and the people we employ, to name a few.  

We ask that you keep the current allocation of profits as it is currently.



Tiffani Bowman,
