THE NEBRASKA SUPREME COURT HAS RULED THAT THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE WILL BE ABLE TO VOTE ON A PROPOSED MEASURE THAT WOULD AMEND THE NEBRASKA STATE CONSTITUTION TO LEGALIZE CASINO GAMBLING, ALONG WITH TWO STATUTORY INITIATIVES TO REGULATE CASINO GAMING.

THE RULING SUPPORTS A PETITION EFFORT BY THE GROUP “KEEP THE MONEY IN NEBRASKA” AND OTHER SUPPORTERS TO BRING CASINO GAMING TO THE STATE.

THE SUPREME COURT’S SPLIT DECISION OVERRULED THE SECRETARY.
