NTRA Making Progress on Withholding

According to an update from the NTRA Players Coalition:

The PACE Act would eliminate the automatic federal withholding on winnings of $5,000 or more. The bill was introduced in the last Congress by Rep. Charles Boustany, Jr. (R-LA), whose district includes two racetracks.

We will be placing up email addresses and contact information for when the push is on. Many players, big and small, shoot for a jackpot bet now and again. Withholding is not only hurting our bankrolls, but in the big picture - hurting handles and purses.
