LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Kentucky Governor Beshear say he will likely try a fifth time to get some kind of casino gaming bill approved by the Kentucky General Assembly.
The governor told WDRB News it is one of several of his legislative priorities.
"Tax reform, pension reform, casino gaming," says the governor.
Beshear was in Louisville on Friday to give a speech before the Louisville Urban League's annual luncheon.
A bill that would allow a referendum on casinos in Kentucky failed to make it through the Senate earlier this year.
But that was before the governor appointed former senate president David Williams to a circuit judgeship.
Williams was the governors biggest foe on the issue.
This will be the fifth try to attempt to get such legislation approved by the General Assembly.
"We've been working at it since I was elected governor, and we've come a long way in that we finally got them to at least vote on it once."
The governor says he will spend the next several weeks trying to gain support on the issue as well as his other priorities.
He still believes casino gaming is an easy issue to support because neighboring states like Indiana are taking gambling dollars out of Kentucky.
"They get to educate their kids," says Beshear, "they get to build roads and support their schools and their horse industry, while we are just sending that money over to Indiana from Kentucky residents who enjoy that kind of entertainment."
With new Senate leadership the governor says he is more optimistic that relations between his office and lawmakers will be much improved this upcoming session.
"I think we can get away from the gotcha politics and be Kentuckians first, and democrats and republicans second," says the governor.
