ST. PAUL, MN -- Profit Minnesota, the lobbying organization for pro-VLT bar owners, unveiled a gambling legalization bill and staged a rally at the state Capitol building here on April 26.
The bill would give bars the right to have electronic bingo, electronic pull-tabs and video slot machines. Supporters said legalization would yield $230 million a year for charities and $630 million in annual state tax revenues.
