Kentucky Representative Looking To Legalize Slot Machines

After twelve years of debate by the General Assembly on gambling issues, State Representative Tom Burch has drafted a bill that would allow 18,000 slot machines to become legal in Kentucky.

The bill would allow every county the choice to have slot machines and would also allow 6,000 slot machines at the eight licensed race tracks in Kentucky.

Representative Burch says the bill would help raise money for Kentucky's treasury and lure tourists in a more subtle manner than casinos.
