State Senator Says Expanded Gambling Bill's Passage Unlikely

Bowling Green’s state senator, Republican Mike Wilson, told the Daily News on Friday he’s still not optimistic that expanded gambling will become reality in Kentucky. Wilson’s comments came after Gov. Steve Beshear said Thursday that he’s ready to raise the issue again in the General Assembly. Expanded gambling failed to move past the state Senate during Beshear’s first term.
