NC Family has just received confirmation from the office of U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) that recent efforts in Congress to include a provision in the Omnibus Appropriations Bill that would have paved the way for a massive Indian gambling casino west of Charlotte have been averted.
THANK YOU to everyone who responded to the Alert we sent Tuesday and called North Carolina Senators Richard Burr and Thom Tillis about this very important matter! Your calls were heard and they made a huge difference!!!
Earlier this week, NC Family was alerted to a major push in Congress by South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham to add language to the Omnibus Appropriations Bill that would assist the South Carolina-based Catawba Indian Nation to establish an enormous 220,000 square foot Las Vegas-style gambling casino along the I-85 corridor in Kings Mountain, North Carolina, just west of Charlotte. Such a casino would cannibalize the local economy and would be a scourge on North Carolina, our government, and our families.
Thank you for your good work — together we can make a difference!
