Rochester VFW fears pending state ruling on electronic gambling may harm charity

The Story

Though legal gambling is becoming increasingly more popular nationwide, charities in Minnesota may be running into some regulatory trouble. The state Senate held a hearing Wednesday on the functionality of electronic pull tabs, or e pull tabs, which could negatively impact charities and the businesses hosting them across the state.The Minnesota legislature is reacting to a state judge’s ruling a year ago about whether or not e pull tabs too closely resemble slot machines. The judge ruled they don’t. The bill before the Senate would further regulate their use. Electronic pull-tabs are considered an important way for charities such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) to gain much needed funds.
