40 percent increase needs to be reevaluated!

40 percent gaming increase is way to high!  Requiring the Lodges to give 50% right off the top will devastate them.  This will not only affect our schools and youth sports, as well as our local communities who have come to rely on their donations throughout the year.
This huge increase will not only affect the ability to help the community, but will eventually lead to the closure of most lodges, therefore leading to loss of jobs.

We ask that you please reevaluate such a large amount and what it could ultimately do, not only to the lodges, but the community it helps!

Thank you for your time!
