how can i find the lawmakers that voted for this. when they legalize gambling the fire departments took a big hit on there bingo`s. now with this being pass it makes it almost inpossible for them to have any fund raising. i think every vol. fireman and every member that is in a non profit organization needs to vote the lawmakers out that voted on the small games of chance bill. what you all think

Can you direct me to a story referencing this bill. Non-profits have been allowed to purchase a small games of chance permit for years. Of course the bingo permit is a seperate entity and has been. As well as a permit to serve booze away from the club at picnics etc. but for one day at a time.

The new law that just went in effect has new reporting requirements that did not exist before. The ornanization has to collect personal informaton of anyone who is awarded a prize with a value of $100 or more an keep a "rolling" total. Then issue a 1099 IRS form for the year. Some of the current tickets/games are not permitted. No indivdual prize greater than $1,000 without a special permit (10 times a year) 50/50 drawings are not permitted. The new required paperwork and reporting will be very cumbersome for a lot of the organizations, plus I don't know if I want my local club/fire co. etc. getting my Social Security number. However,you can win the state run Daiy Lottery 3 digit number everyday and not report thing. Sounds like he Casino Lobby got the Legislature to make it hard for the no-profits so there would be less competition.
