Funding For Problem Gamblers Could Be Cut

Governor Brian Sandoval’s proposed budget could mean cuts in programs for problem gamblers. “The New York Times” says more than five-percent of Nevada residents are either pathological or problem gamblers. A two-dollar fee on slot machine fees has helped pay for research, treatment and prevention for problem gamblers since 2005. But with the state’s budget deficit, Sandoval has proposed taking half of the problem gaming fund for the general ground. And some lawmakers want to cut the program altogether. Robert Hunter with the Problem Gambling Center says if he lost state funding, the outpatient counseling facility, quote, “would be forced to make some dramatic cuts.”
