The Economic Benefits From Cardrooms Are at Risk
California’s Bureau of Gambling Control is now considering significant changes to legally approved card games that have been offered in California Cardrooms for three decades.
The California Cardroom Alliance opposes revocation of the legal approval of these games, which would imperil thousands of living wage jobs around the state and create cavernous deficits in local government budgets that depend upon cardroom revenue.
Statewide Economic Benefit
Cardrooms throughout California provide the largest source of local tax revenue for their communities and support surrounding businesses and neighboring communities.
Our Cardrooms Are Lawful
Cardrooms have been authorized and approved by the Department of Justice since 1983.
California Cardrooms employ more than 23,000 individuals across the state and are under extensive regulatory scrutiny.
“The often-underserved population in my community relies heavily on the stability and security of revenue provided by cardrooms. We fund employment programs and nutrition programs for our youth, furnish meals to seniors in need and offer several successful substitutes to gang membership.”
“The scholarship programs supported by cardroom revenue gives many students in our communities a chance to complete their degrees. Cardrooms are an invaluable partner in their education.”
“Cardrooms contribute steady revenues, well-paying jobs and capital improvements to many communities in need of economic development. Without adequate funding, we will be forced to cut Section 8 programs and efforts to rehabilitate business and residences.”
