Amend Michigan's charitable gaming laws to help nonprofits.

This petition had 1,354 supporters

Especially as Michigan continues to recover from the economic recession, it's essential that Michigan charities stay active and continue their valuable work in our communities.

The current law that regulates charitable gaming in Michigan, the Traxler-McCauley-Law-Bowman Bingo Act, was passed in 1972 to protect citizens, charities, and businesses as they worked together to fundraise for charities with bingo, raffles, and casino nights. Now over 40 years old, this law has become outdated, and it doesn't address many aspects of today's charitable gaming environment.

Amending Michigan's charitable gaming laws will allow nonprofits to easily raise more money to put back into our communities in addition to protecting charities, business owners, and state residents and providing clear legal guidelines regarding violations and sanctions for those involved in charitable gaming.
