The third day of second-round debate on casino gambling ends with no vote.

Lawmakers are expected to take a vote on the proposed constitutional amendment next week.

Friday, lawmakers rejected an amendment that would have required a local vote before a casino could locate in a community.

Senators also debated an amendment to allow communities to hold a vote after a casino has been in a county after five years. Voters would be able to say whether they want the casino to continue.

Both amendments were offered by gambling opponent Senator Adrian Smith of Gering.

Lawmakers moved off the underlying issue before a vote could be taken on its advancement.
