The Joint Committee on Administrative Rules held a hearing on Thursday regarding changes to charity gaming events. The rule changes have been proposed by the state’s Gaming Control Board and are not part of a legislative action. However, JCAR was established to help provide oversight on bureaucratic rule changes and yesterday’s hearing was a great example of this oversight. Those proposing the changes had to come and explain and defend what they are doing at a public meeting hosted by the committee, which is comprised of state representatives and senators. Given the size of the crowd and the amount of interest in this issue, it sounds like this isn’t the last the Gaming Control Board will be hearing about their proposal.
