Yes on Amendment C

YES on AMENDMENT C: Charitable Bingo and Raffles Amendment

Summary of Amendment C: This amendment to the state constitution would lower the number of years an organization must have existed before obtaining a charitable gaming license from five years to three years and would allow charitable organizations to hire managers and operators of gaming activities so long as they are not paid more than the minimum wage. 

Recommendation Rationale: This measure helps local charities hold bingo and raffle events in order to raise funds for their operations. This helps them support folks and causes in communities across the state. Rep. Jonathan Singer was one of the prime sponsors of this bill in the legislature.

The Colorado Democratic Party (the state party) did not take a position.
