FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A long-awaited proposal to open Kentucky
to casino gambling could be introduced in the Senate within days.
Gov. Steve Beshear said he has reached an agreement with state
Sen. Damon Thayer on the wording of a proposed constitutional
amendment that will be introduced in a few days.
Beshear has been pushing for years to allow Kentuckians to wager on more than horse races. He wants to lift a constitutional ban on casinos in hopes of keeping money in Kentucky that is now being
gambled in neighboring states.
If lawmakers approve a constitutional amendment, it would be
placed on the ballot for voters to ratify or reject in November.
