Gaming Regulations/forms

The proposal for charitable organizations gaming proceeds to be dictated by legislation must be reconsidered.  I wonder how many on this legislative committee has seen, first hand, or is a member of such an organization and the vast impact in has on the charities in the community and nationwide.  The staff and operational expenses have a direct impact on the charitable operations and donations each of these civic groups provide.  Without the social aspect of these organizations, there will be no charitable donations.  Why dictate to these organizations on how they spend the gaming profits when ultimately it goes to the community and charities.  Please reconsider and get connected and knowledgeable on on the negative impact it will have on our community and your voting constituents.
