Gambling is not good for South Dakota!

 SJR9 is a Joint Resolution submitting to the voters in the next general election permission to give the city of Yankton authority to erect a casino for games of chance (roulette, keno, craps, limited card games, and slot machines).  SJR9 will be heard in the Senate Local Government Committee tomorrow, February 21.

ACTION: Contact the members of the committee and your state senator and ask them to vote NO on SJR9.  Stress that we do not need any further expansion of gambling in our state. Let them know that you are a member of Concerned Women for America of South Dakota.
