At Tuesday’s Michigan Gaming Control Board meeting, Board Chairman Robert Anthony noted that the new legislation that has been enacted calls for $2 Million of additional problem gambling funding. He noted that there is already money being spent, indirectly, by the state of Michigan, but noted that “it isn’t clear, exactly what the Board’s responsibility is with respect to making sure that that money is being spent effectively in programs that are really going to focus on problem gambling.”

The Chairman then indicated to Executive Director Rick Kalm that he would like some kind of report over the next two or three meetings, explaining how the money is currently being used, how they intend to use the additional dollars, and how the Board can measure the effectiveness of the money being spent. Mr. Kalm noted that he will try to capture all of the various sources of funds for problem gambling (Lottery, sports wagering bill, horse racing) and will request Health and Human Services (which receives the statutory funding) to provide information about how this money has been spent in the past and what the plans are for the future.
