North Dakota Considers Casino Gambling Bill
State Lawmakers Pondering Plan For Six Casinos
North Dakota is looking at expanding gambling in a big way.
Already with 10 tribal casinos, state lawmakers are considering legislation that would allow up to six Las Vegas-style casinos.
Such a move would require a change to the state’s constitution to allow for the commercial casino-style gambling. State voters would have to sign off next year. Under the most recent version of the plan, the commercial casinos would have to be at least 40 miles away from an existing Native American casino.
North Dakota has five poker rooms with about two dozen tables between them.
Currently, there are nearly 4,000 slot machines statewide between the 10 tribal casinos. Tribal gaming is regulated by the federal government and not the state of North Dakota.
The legislation is opposed by Native American groups, The Bismark Tribune reported.
The original version of the proposal called for the new casinos to be state owned and operated, but a recent adjustment to the plan calls for them to be privately operated, while still state owned and regulated.
The legislation would create the North Dakota Casino Gaming Commission.
