Casino Gambling

By  | 

A national anti-gambling advocate says information will win out over money in the battle to legalize casinos in Nebraska.

The Reverend Tom Grey with the National Coalition Against Legalized Gambling is in Omaha Tuesday to help organize efforts to stop expanded gambling proposals in Nebraska.

The Legislature's plan to legalize two casinos in Nebraska already is on the November second ballot. Petition drives are under way to put two other expanded gambling measures on the ballot.

Grey says the vote will determine the future of the state. He says once given the information about the problems associated with casinos, Nebraskans will reject the proposals.

He says the opposition will use people to counter the pro-gambling contingent's money. He says it's a strategy that has worked in other states.
