The Michigan Charitable Gaming Association, a collection of groups who support fundraising for charitable organizations and advocation and education of the general public and legislators on matters relating to charitable gaming, has voiced its disappointment and concern with former Governor Rick Snyder’s veto of the charitable gaming bill.  In a post to its website, the MiCGA asserts that Governor Snyder’s letter explaining his rationale was “inaccurate”.  It states that one of the charitable gaming bills was sponsored by Senator Rick Jones, who is term-limited out of house.  However, the other bill sponsor, Rep. Tom Barrett, has moved over to the Senate and has agreed to sponsor a new charitable gaming bill in the 2019-2020 legislative session.  The MiCGA indicates that it is working with Senator Barrett in finding a House bill sponsor and that it is in the process of reaching out to new Governor Gretchen Whitmer to advocate for revisions to the current regulations.  The MiCGA urged interested parties to contact it and to follow MiCGA on Facebook.
