Where the Money Goes
West Virginia benefits tremendously from the gaming and racing industry — but to remain stable and independent, we can’t afford any additional burdens on this important source of revenue.
• Preserving economic stability for the state allows West Virginia to continue funding social impact programs regardless of policy decisions in Washington or Charleston.
• Investing in the modernization of gaming products is an investment in our state’s future, allowing West Virginia to continue to compete with facilities in neighboring states.
• Imposing new and unpredictable taxes hurts a critical industry that already distributes millions to state programs — and burdening it further could negatively affect the state budget.
