The Michigan Charitable Gaming Association released the following today:

Today, State Representative Jeff Farrington introduced House Bill 4960 that reforms the regulations and processes of charitable gaming in Michigan. He also issued this statement:

“Since the Administration switched charitable gaming from the Bureau of the Lottery to the Gaming (casinos) Control Board – there has been a 70% decrease in licenses issued. That’s 70% less money charities have to assist the less fortunate in our society! The reforms outlined in this comprehensive 75 page bill regulates the industry, keeping out the bad actors- while allowing groups like Kiwanis and the Optimist Clubs bring in revenue that assist those in need.”

Thank you Representative Farrington for taking up this important issue!

I’m reading it now but it’s 75 pages. Please read the bill here and post your comments below.
