Advocacy Group Opposes Horse Track Casinos

Not even one week after Kentucky House Speaker Greg Stumbo introduced the latest attempt to bring slots to horse tracks, an effort to defeat the bill is already underway.

An advocacy group, "say no to casinos," is highlighting what it calls the negative impacts of house bill 158, which would create so called "racinos."

"Say no to casinos" also has an issue with the fact that under this bill there would not be a voter referendum to approve the video gambling terminals.

Stumbo wants to bring video lottery terminals to horse tracks, he says, to give low and middle income people a tax break.
