The passage of this bill will not only have a negative impact our lodge, more importantly it will have a tremendous impact on our charitable work and our ability to give to our community, including our local veterans as well as veterans at the VA hospital in Salem.

In the past 6 months we have tripled our charitable work and giving due to the gaming funds.  If passed, we can no longer continue to do this.

I was unaware the definition of "charitable" included lining the coffers of our state government.
