A constitutional amendment dealing with expanded gambling in Kentucky could come before the General Assembly as early as this week, state Sen. R.J. Palmer II, D-Winchester, said. “I think the people of the commonwealth have made it pretty clear that they are ready to vote on this issue. There has to be a constitutional amendment passed by the General Assembly before it can be voted on by the people of the state,” Palmer said. Currently, Palmer is working on a draft of an amendment that he hopes to sponsor, getting input from Republicans, gambling industry insiders and the governor.
