House members voted overwhelmingly to approve a change that would make it easier for charitable gambling organizations to file financial reports.

Sponsored by Rep. Greg Davids (R-Preston), HF786 would simplify accounting regulations for charitable gambling organizations. Under the proposed change, the state’s annual financial reporting requirements would match up more closely with federal requirements, eliminating the need for charitable organizations to report two different sets of numbers.

Davids said he is not aware of any opposition to the bill.

Passed 129-0 by the House March 21, it now awaits action by the Senate State Government Innovation and Veterans Committee. Sen. Ted Daley (R-Eagan) is the Senate sponsor.
