Iowa Gambling News Brief

Will gambling be debated in the Legislature this year?

Radio Iowa,  Saturday, January 6, 2007 at 9:37:39 PM

The 2006 Iowa legislative session was consumed with debate about the fate of the Iowa Lottery's TouchPlay machines. But what's ahead for 2007? That issue still looms since TouchPlay owners and operators have sued the state for pulling the plug on the machines, but most legislative leaders say they're not expecting a debate about gambling in 2007.

Senate Democratic Leader Mike Gronstal of Council Bluffs says that means no direct action from lawmakers in response to the cities of Fort Dodge, Ottumwa and Tama which are hoping to land a casino. "I don't think the legislature has ever kind of stepped up to the plate and said 'We want these three casinos approved.' We've left that up to a commission. We think that makes some sense," Gronstal says. "I think it's exceedingly unlikely that we'll have a debate on gambling." the source
