Governor's Casino Proposal May Be Announced

Governor Steve Beshear apparently plans to unveil his casino gambling proposal .

The Governor says a proposed constitutional amendment and coinciding legislation to set up casinos will be filed in the general assembly today.

Beshear and supporters say casino gambling could generate up to $500 million dollars in new revenue for the state.
Those against the legislation say gambling will bring more social and economic problems, than benefits.

In recent days, the governor has urged lawmakers to consider two different state budgets, one without casino revenue and another version that would include some money from casinos.
