Kentucky Bill Would Allow Referendum For Voter Approval of Seven Casinos

The bill has bipartisan support and has 10 co-sponsors, two Republicans and eight Democrats.

Senator Damon Thayer, who filed the bill, says the bill will likely go to the Senate’s State and Local Government Committee, which he is the chair of. He plans to have a vote on February 22.

Recent polls done by both the state Republican party and racetracks found that over 80 percent of Kentucky citizens, regardless of their stance on the issue, want to vote on allowing casinos in the state.
