Date Petition Received 09/07/2017
Petitioner Katherine Phelps, on behalf of patrons of the Redwood Community Association Bingo
 Petitioner's Request
Petitioner requests that the Charitable Gaming Board repeal subdivision E of 11 VAC 15-40-110 of the Charitable Gaming Regulations, which states, in part, that no landlord, his agent or employee, member of his immediate family, or person residing in the same household shall at charitable games conducted on the landlord's premises participate in the management, operation, or conduct of any charitable games.  Petitioner further states: "If this rule cannot be repealed, all bingo halls should be compelled to comply with this rule and not single out just one bingo hall.  If all bingo halls are not compelled to comply, that is discrimination on the part of the gaming commission.  We, the undersigned, are patrons at Redwood Community Association Bingo and notice their owners are no longer working bingo.  However, when visiting other bingo halls, we notice that the owners of the property are head of the bingo and family members are workers, managers, etc."
 Agency Plan
The Charitable Gaming Board will consider this request at its next scheduled meeting following the public comment period.  This meeting will occur on December 12, 2017.
