Charity Gaming Rules Change Approved by Senate

February 13, 2009

A bill changing some charitable gaming rules in Indiana is halfway through the General Assembly. The Senate approved the measure, which aims at helping organizations with their fundraising efforts. Senator Ron Alting says rules enacted two-years ago by the Gaming Commission have cut participation at such places as the American Legion and VFW. The Lafayette area Republican says the bill he authored would require less record keeping, which is too cumbersome now. The proposal raises the minimum payout to 12-hundred dollars before requiring personal information from winners. The bill is currently waiting committee assignment in the House.
