In a release on Sunday, TTMCA said they had accepted an invitation by the Minister of Finance Colm Imbert to have a meeting with Casino owners.

But they want to take it a step further, challenging Minister Imbert and Minister in the Ministry of Finance Alyson West to a public debate on matters surrounding the Gaming Industry.

But the release, which was attributed to the Association's President Sherry Persad, vented on other issues. One of which was Alyson West's contribution during the budget debate.

Persad questioned parts of her speech in the upper house, "For example the claim that the Gaming Industry is estimated at between $15 to $20 Billion. This estimate is laughable, but this, unfortunately, has the government drooling enough to tax the industry. Who has done this estimate? "

The group called a meeting with Minister West a public relations exercise, as West did not wait on verified information she requested at that meeting before making her contribution. 

The TTMCA also defended the concerns of protesting employees saying, "The employees understand that the 100% tax is to be applied to gaming equipment and not a tax on the "owners". The obvious reduction in gaming equipment will result in less employees in the industry."
