Indiana Charity Gaming Bill Benefitting “Friends of NRA” Banquets Heads to House Committee

Friday, February 10, 2012

Please contact members of the state House Public Policy Committee TODAY!

Last week, the Indiana Senate voted unanimously to pass Senate Bill 315, authored by state Senator Randy Head (R-18).  SB 315 has now been assigned to the state House Public Policy Committee and could be heard as early as Tuesday, February 14.  SB 315 would streamline the licensing and reporting process for charity gaming events, such as the Friends of NRA banquets, by:

1.  Establishing one comprehensive charity gaming license for national organizations and foundations for use by their local affiliates;

2.  Removing the current six-to-nine week application process and requiring in its place a 21-day notification to the Indiana Gaming Commission prior to an event; and

3.  Allowing qualified organizations and foundations to "police their own" by removing requirements to turn over volunteers' personal information to the Indiana Gaming Commission.

These policy changes would greatly improve the ability of Friends of NRA committees to comply with Indiana charitable gaming laws in a timely and less cumbersome fashion, while protecting the personal information of Friends of NRA volunteers.

As many NRA members well know, Friends of NRA banquets play a critical role in raising grant money to support education, safety, and training programs in communities across the Hoosier State, such as the Boy Scouts, 4H clubs, and local law enforcement groups.  Unfortunately, some Friends of NRA chapters had difficulties holding banquets last year, which resulted in a net loss of approximately $100,000 in money that cannot be used for these Indiana groups.

Please contact members of the state House Public Policy Committee TODAY and respectfully urge their support of SB 315.
