RACE TRACK SLOTS
(2007-08-22)
(wgvu) - ANOTHER FIGHT IS BREWING OVER WHETHER
MICHIGAN'S HORSE RACING TRACKS SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO ADD
CASINO-STYLE GAMBLING.
SUPPORTERS OF ADDING SLOT MACHINES AND OTHER CASINO GAMES TO
HORSE TRACKS TESTIFIED TODAY BEFORE THE STATE HOUSE REGULATORY
REFORM COMMITTEE.
THEY SAY CASINO GAMBLING AT HORSE TRACKS WOULD RAISE TAX REVENUE
FOR A CASH-STRAPPED STATE GOVERNMENT.
MICHIGAN HORSE TRACKS HAVE BEEN UNSUCCESSFUL IN THEIR PREVIOUS
ATTEMPTS TO ADD SLOT MACHINES AND OTHER GAMES.
THEIR EFFORTS TO START SO-CALLED "RACINOS" ARE OPPOSED BY
DETROIT AND AMERICAN INDIAN TRIBAL CASINOS, AS WELL AS BY
ANTI-GAMBLING ORGANIZATIONS.
