Help Georgia Prosper
Let the people decide
Gaming legislation progressed further in the 2019 than in any prior year and the Governor made it clear that he will not stand in the way allowing Georgians to vote on gaming. Many stakeholders were involved in pushing the effort, but it’s clear that the individual efforts of each of these stakeholders will not be enough to cross the finish line.
Passage of a Constitutional Amendment allowing Georgia voters to decide the issue is the best way forward. Our movement intends to ensure legislative approval of a proposed amendment that creates new jobs and restores the promise of HOPE for all Georgians.

It's time to change the conversation from one of fear to one of hope and prosperity.
Preventing legalized gaming in the state doesn’t prevent gambling, it just moves it a couple of hours down the road to NC, AL, MS and FL.
We are losing tourist and tax revenue to other states when travelers are only driving through or stopping over to change planes in Georgia, at Hartsfield Jackson, the world’s busiest airport.
Despite all of the economic benefits that have been repeatedly shared with Georgia decision-makers, the opposition to legalized gaming seems to come primarily from the belief that casinos are breeding grounds for crime and increased gambling addiction.
Reality contradicts this perception.
We’ve seen numerous successes in other states, where casinos have created thousands of jobs, allowed hundreds of individuals to rise up the corporate ladder and generated unprecedented revenue for states and municipalities, through taxes and tourism.
Casinos have evolved to become family-friendly Entertainment Experience Venues, with recreational activities, such as golf courses and marinas, retail and fine dining offerings, and performance centers and theaters, which could complement the growing film industry as film premiere locations.
Among the prime development locations for a destination entertainment venue are rural locations ideally situated and with stunning natural resources to attract out of state visitors, support new businesses and significant tax revenue for Georgia.

“Georgia has an advantage that could ease some of the concerns. Georgia has the benefit of seeing what has worked well (in other states) and the problems that have come up.”- Edward Lindsey
