|Action||Promulgation of Charitable Gaming Regulations by Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, including electronic gaming provisions|

The regulations being considered will have a negative effect on Elks Lodges in Virginia. The use of proceeds of 40% is outrageous. If this level of Use of Proceeds becomes law, the following will happen in the Elk Lodges thoughout Virginia.
Elks along with many other dedicated fraternal and Veterans organizations, give to local charity groups in a effort to help the needy and deserving in their respective communities. If the Elks and other similar groups cannot make 40% Use of Proceeds, who will pick up the lost revenue to support local charities. I believe a 10% Use of Proceeds would be welcome by Virginia Elks Lodges.
