Pre-commitment petition

I received the below email from the Gambling Impact Society (http://www.gisnsw.org.au) and think it’s too important not to pass on to you.

All Gambling Impact Society Subscribers,
Are you concerned about problem gambling in the community? If so… well this is a chance for you to voice your opinion. The proposed gambling reforms aim to prevent people getting into difficulties with poker machine gambling an assist those who may be developing problems. Based on the findings of extensive research by the Productivity Common in 2009 our Prime minister has promised to change the technology of pokies to make them safer by  introducing a universal pre-commitment system which will allow every person who gambles on the pokies to set personal limits on the amount of money they are prepared to lose BEFORE they start to gamble. This is a big move to prevent problem gabbing in our Country and we know the Gambling Industry isn’t happy about it  – they depend on between 40 – 60% if their profits from those gambling problematically. They are concerned about losing money, not people, and are prepared to spend $10 million on a campaign to resist the changes. We need to get a community voice heard. If YOU think that pre-commitment is a good idea than please sign our petition and HAVE YOUR SAY…Don’t forget to pass it on to your friends, family and co-workers too. We need to get the community behind these reforms.
