Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):


    The fiscal impact to the State would be reflected in lost liquor, wine and beer sales and also possibly lost lottery revenues. Perhaps a Fiscal Note request should be sent to Tax and Lottery.
    
    The WVABCA is not able to quantify the loss of revenue but it could be a significant loss of sales tax revenue, liquor, wine & beer tax revenue and also lost lottery revenue and play attempts on the machines. Perhaps a Fiscal Note request should be sent to Tax and Lottery.
