ORLA is the only major trade association in the state that has defended lottery retailers since the introduction of video lottery in Oregon. ORLA defends commission rates and protects against extreme regulatory attacks, such as increased casino expansions off tribal reservations. ORLA is supportive of gaming as entertainment, adjunct to the hospitality industry.
Our government affairs staff have regular conversations with the Oregon Lottery on issues of importance for our members, including the protection of commission rates. As retailers well know, there’s increasing competition from out of state casinos threatening diminished revenues for the state. There is no one better positioned to continue having these crucial conversations with the Lottery to protect retailers’ rates.
Have questions / concerns about issues relating to the Lottery? Give us a call at 503.682.4422 or email Advocacy@OregonRLA.org.
