Arkansas Supreme Court Rejects Nancy Todd's Casino Measure
Measure Would Have Brought Four Casinos To Arkansas
A measure that would have brought four casinos to Arkansas has been rejected by the state’s Supreme Court after it was ruled that the proposal’s language failed to properly inform voters, according to the Associate Press.
Poker player Nancy Todd’s constitutional amendment would have given Las Vegas-based Poker Palace LLC exclusive rights to own and operate casinos in Franklin, Crittenden, Pulaski and Miller County.
Todd’s proposal collected the required 78,133 signatures, but was rejected by officials following a recommendation from Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel, who claimed language in the measure was too vague and insufficient. McDaniel stated that the proposal failed to inform voters that the law could repeal existing electronic gambling within the state.
Todd revised her piece of legislation and then filed a lawsuit to get it placed on the November ballot, but the Supreme Court ruled that her signatures were invalid because they were gathered before making the necessary changes to the bill’s language.
Arkansas currently only offers gambling in the form of parimutuel wagering at various dog and horse racing tracks. Those in favor of Todd’s measure, as well as a competing measure by businessman Michael Wasserman, have pointed out the millions of dollars that exit the state each year due to neighboring states with casinos, such as Missouri, Oklahoma, Mississippi and Louisiana.
