Council vows to fight more pokies reforms
After five days of negotiations with the PNL over its proposal to eliminate the lottery to create a new pot-funded fund, the Premier’s Office is continuing to argue it’s a more responsible course of action than closing up shops and forcing everyone to give up a pe카지노 게임rcentage of their earnings.
Opposition Leader John Horgan said his party will continue fighting changes to the lottery until the changes are made, and that there are many other steps that should be undertaken to improve the process.
In the final stage of negotiations in the legislature Monday morning, Mr Horgan warned opposition parties that if they don’t give up their own demands in return for changes to the lottery, they will seek their own powers to change it as needed.
„I think we’ve got to keep working our way from there,“ Mr Horgan said.
„I believe people are asking tough questions and we are not going to make excuses, and I’m prepared to sit down with them to discuss how they can get some of their questions answered in an effective way.“
‘New business model’
Ms McGuire said the government has not made the changes it said it would when it passed legislation making it illegal fo더킹 카지노r individuals to participate in the lottery.
„We’ve only said we are going to make it legal and what we want to do is put in place an efficient system,“ she said.
„We know that it can take a bit of time to establish the system in places like Atlantic and the Cape, because of the very complicated nature of the legislation that is here. But we are making sure that the process goes forward.“
The new pot fund will be run by a separate entity from the existing lottery.
The funds will be created through an administrative fee, and that is expected to be about 30 per cent of revenue, though many lottery operators say that is too small.
„The point of the proposed system is to encourage the creation of and investment in econom솔레어 카지노ic activity,“ Ms McGuire said.
„That is the whole reason for the introduction of the lottery in the first place.“
Ms McGuire promised that if new legislation were passed as it was, the lottery would be closed by April next year and the lottery operations would be transferred to a new fund to make up the difference.
„We haven’t heard from them yet or if they ever will and I’m very sorry that this is frustrating for them and for us,“ she said.
But she decline
