Committee Votes No On Casinos

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A proposal to legalize casinos in Kentucky
has been voted down by a sharply divided House committee.

Two separate proposals were up for consideration on Tuesday, but
the Committee on Elections, Constitutional Amendments and
Intergovernmental Affairs couldn't agree on either.

Gov. Steve Beshear met with House Speaker Jody Richards and
other Democratic leaders in his office Monday night in an effort to
nudge his gambling proposal along.

Beshear wants Kentucky lawmakers to approve a constitutional
amendment that would allow casino gambling in the state.
