Coalition Supports Gambling Ballot

Feb 10, 2012

Business, union and education leaders from across the state announced Thursday the formation of an advocacy group to call for putting a constitutional amendment to expand gambling on the November ballot. The Kentucky Alliance for Jobs, a tax-exempt 501(c)4 that can raise funds and spend on political campaigns and legislation, will be a grass-roots lobbying group, said Dave Adkisson, president and CEO of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.
