The wolves slavering at the legislature to figure out a way to carve a nice slice out of the envisioned pie of revenue from constitutionally authorized charitable bingo may be in for some tough sledding.

The attorney general’s office issued an opinion on it today. It’s not binding, of course. But it indicates it will be hard to figure out a way to funnel bingo receipts to people working for charitable organizations or to independent operators hired to run bingo games.

Wouldn’t that be a shame?

The opinion summary is on the jump.
