Committee passes Kentucky casino bill in second vote

A committee in the Kentucky House of Representatives passed a bill during an unscheduled meeting on Wednesday that would ask voters to approve nine casinos in the state.
The bill passed by a vote of 7-2 one day after the same committee rejected a similar bill. On Tuesday night, the chairman of the committee replaced one of the members who had voted against the bill on Tuesday.
The legislation will now go to the state's full house, where 60 of the 100 members have to approve the bill before it can be sent to the state senate. The senate has indicated so far that it is not willing to pass a bill that allows for expanded gambling in the state.
