Four reasons to vote 1. Passed by your legislature Referendum 84 appears on the General Election ballot as Chapter 37', Laws of 1963, because it is a law passed over@he]mingly by the Legislature-80 to 19 in the Senate; 62 to 86 in the House. Certain force who now oppose Referendum 34 also opposed it in the Legls|atttre. They were sotmdIy defeated because our Legislators believed in the merits of this "law and the need for its passage. Now those opponents are making one last effort to overthrow the will of your Legislature by campaigning against Referendum 34. 2. Keeps out professional gambling Thls law will. not and cannot relax the absolute restrictions that are phced on gambling in our state. Thls law will define exactly what local governments can permit in the way of amusement games. This includes only bingo, trade stimulants, cardplaying and mechanical games without payoffs. By defining and licensing these games, and by requiring a rigid screeahg of applicants, this law will keep out the syndicated gambling interests that operate just below the surface in states where no such control exists. 3. Protects worthy civic projects Referendum 34 protects the opportunity for bona fide charitable, religious, veteran, fraternal, civic, athletle or other non-profit organlzati0 to conduct worthwhile fund-raising projects. These projects, such as bingo, used by our churches, county fairs and other civic groups for charitable causes, have been technically illegal under 1909 law. In the interest of c/arification, and in the face of efforts to change that law or to enforce it, Referendum 84 offers an exact definition of what is permissible.., ff allowed by local government. If Referendum 34 is defeated, such worthy endeavors will have to be outlawed, according to oflaeia/s in many of our communities. 4. Saves jobs and taxes Referendum 34 assures economic stability for many small businesses and working people in stores, restaurants, taverns, and other public senri0. It also prevents the loss of an estimated $10,000,000 tax income each biennium. If Referendum 84 is defeated, additioxl razes will have to be Ie:e& Vote FOR.
