Indiana: Your Action Needed Immediately to Help Save Friends of NRA Banquets!

Friday, October 14, 2011

Current Indiana Gaming Commission regulations have shut down numerous FNRA banquets, leaving safety and education programs suffering from the loss of donations and funds!

“Friends of NRA” needs your help today!  Numerous banquets have been shut down and important revenue has been lost due to recent impractical bureaucratic regulations.  Local law enforcement groups, shooting ranges, Boy Scouts and 4-H groups stand to lose the most from these onerous requirements and regulations.  Please contact state legislators immediately and request their support to simplify Indiana’s charity gaming law! 

A request must be made to the General Assembly to create a new gaming permit for national bona fide conservation organizations.  As it stands now, current law allows for a permit for a national 501(c)3 organization, but this system severely restricts the ability of these charitable organizations to hold the events necessary for their survival and success.  Also, the current application process, required information, and detailed accounting do not work for volunteer organizations without physical locations.  The current system is not only unnecessarily restrictive, but requires those who wish to volunteer for these organizations to jump through hoops and waste valuable time.

The Charity Gaming Study Committee of the Indiana General Assembly will hold a hearing on October 18 to consider issues related to licensing and regulating national organizations and their affiliates.  Please petition the state Gaming Commission to create a new permit that would be valid for one year, and will allow a simple notice provision to the Gaming Commission before an event.  The new permit will comply in all respects with existing rules and requirements, but will simplify the process for the state Commission and the charitable organizations involved, while relieving volunteers of unnecessary burdens and fears of liability.  This study committee meeting will convene at 1:30 p.m. on October 18, in room 431 of the Indiana State House at 200 West Washington Street in Indianapolis. 

Please contact the legislators on the interim study committee TODAY to let them know the importance of improving Gaming regulations to keep “Friends of NRA” banquets up and running!
