Susie Lee has failed to answer the call for Nevadans again. Last week, the SLOT Act was introduced, a bipartisan piece of legislation that would raise the tax reporting limit for slot machine winnings from $1,200 to $5,000. The single-spin jackpot reporting limit has not been raised since 1977. The SLOT Act received widespread support from the Nevada gaming community.
When asked about this legislation Rep. Dina Titus (D-NV) said, “This creates an unnecessary burden on the gaming industry, an economic driver for Southern Nevada and other communities nationwide where slot machines exist.” When Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA), was questioned on the bill, he stated, “Increasing the threshold will eliminate this onerous red tape, ensuring the gaming industry can continue to support good-paying jobs and foster economic growth in southwestern Pennsylvania and across the country.”
Rep. Mark Amodei (R-NV) co-sponsored this commonsense bill. In fact, the bill was supported by Nevada’s entire Congressional delegation, except Susie Lee.
April Becker commented on Susie Lee’s failure to stand up for Nevada’s most important industry, “Susie Lee claims she’s a moderate, bipartisan problem solver, but when the chance came to help our most important industry — Susie was MIA. It should come as no surprise that Susie Lee is all talk when it comes to bipartisan solutions, given that she votes with Nancy Pelosi 99% of the time.”
