WISCONSIN FAMILY ACTION TO LEGISLATORS: DAILY FANTASY SPORTS IS GAMBLING

Madison –  “I can declare that a dog is a cat and that doesn’t change the truth or the reality—even if I dress the dog up like a cat.  It’s still a dog,” declared Wisconsin Family Action president Julaine Appling in a public hearing yesterday.

The Assembly Committee on State Affairs and Government Operations held a hearing Wednesday on a bill, Assembly Bill 800, that goes to great lengths to try to convince people that gambling is not gambling.  The bill blatantly declares that Daily Fantast Sports (DFS) is not gambling and creates a means to legalize the games and regulate them, ostensibly for “consumer protection” reasons.

EVENT ALERT: Beloit/Shullsburg – What Gambling Industry Doesn’t Want You To Know

Problem Gambling is a REAL Problem.

Join us and learn what the Casino Industry doesn’t want you to know, and what we can do to save Your community!

Proponents of off-reservation casinos paint gambling expansion as win-win for local communities- promising jobs, millions of dollars in economic development and reinvestment, and a never-ending source of revenue for local governments. But as so many communities have discovered the hard way, the honeymoon is often short lived, if it happens at all.

In Wisconsin, there are two such proposals pending before the Bureau of Indian Affairs for approval:  Beloit and Shullsburg. And the proponents of these casinos have many people believing that they will save our communities from economic despair and be a local source of wholesome entertainment.

Wisconsin Family Action is co-hosting two informational events with Citizens Against Expanded Gambling in Shullsburg and Beloit next week to help citizens band together and stop these casinos.
