Voters Might Decide Expanded Gambling

Many Northern Kentucky legislators haven't decided whether to support the latest bills for expanded gambling, but they said they hope the next legislative session will lead to a resolution. A bill, pre-filed last week by state Rep. Mike Nemes, R-Louisville, would allow voters statewide to decide in November 2012 whether they want to amend the state constitution to make expanded gambling legal. If the amendment passes, another bill filed by Nemes would allow each county to decide through a local ballot issue whether to allow expanded gambling.
