New gaming Propasal

I have been a member of Fraternal organizations for 42 years. I know what makes them different than other businesses there is a deep commitment to community service which includes both service and Monetary donations we have never had to be forced to give our money to Charity it is bred into us as members to give back to local State and International Charities I realize those who don't know us might think differently Do your own investigation into us or maybe you think you can force us to do more by attaching a large percent on our profits to charities I know it will do the opposite we will have to come up with alternate ways to survive it will certainly cause some to close and or lose members which will lessen what we will be able to give back to Charities PLEASE DON'T TAKE AWAY OUR ABILTY TO HELP THE LESS FORTUNATE

I ask you to consider 10% to charity and WEEKLY deposits we have a huge number of VOLUNTEERS that run our organizations and work plus take care of Family don't make it harder on us Thank you for your consideration in this matter
