Louisville lawmaker wants voters to decide on expanded gaming

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A state lawmaker from Louisville wants to put the issue of expanded gaming in the hands of voters.

Representative Mike Nemes just pre-filed two bills for the 2012 session that, if approved, would let voters decide whether they want gaming in their communities.

He notes that Kentucky has dragged its feet on the issue, while other states such as Indiana and Ohio have approved such legislation. The bills would also set up a statewide program to provide counseling and assistance for compulsive gamblers.
