And whatever the financial problems, I don't see why they can't just raise their licensing fees and make it back from the promoters. If the expenses are truly legit and they would happen in every state, then the promoters would obviously just pay the price that comes with having a legitimate sporting event.
After the DCA sent the CSAC that insolvency letter, the commissioners had a meeting with executive directer Dodd.

He said costs relating to inspectors were over half their budget. So it obviously adds up.

Some people think that they can convey either a philosophy on life or a complex political statement using a signature on the internet. I'm not one of them.
