The organization “Keep the Money in Nebraska” says their effort to legalize casino gambling at Nebraska horse racing tracks by is going well.
The group has raised over $1.1 million to place the issue on the upcoming November ballot.
Spokesman Scott Lautenbaugh says organizers are confident they will have enough signatures by the submission deadline on July 7th.
The petition drive was mostly financed by Ho-Chunk Incorporated. Ho-Chunk is the Winnebago Tribe of Nebraska’s economic development arm. Ho-Chunk says it wants to open a casino at Atokad Downs, a South Sioux City race track that closed in 2012.
Opponents to the effort say their focus is on the general election. Gambling with the Good life continues to build a coalition of churches, business leaders and citizens who will urge voters to deny the proposal.
