Lawmakers consider steps to squash York County casino proposal


STEVE: LAWMAKERS ARE CONSIDERING
A LONG-SHOT IDEA THAT WOULD
ESSENTIALLY KILL THE PLAN TO TRY
TO BUILD A CASINO IN YORK
COUNTY.
THE CASINO PROPOSAL IS SUPPOSED
TO BE ON BALLOTS THIS NOVEMBER,
BUT LEGISLATORS SAY THEY COULD
TAKE THE UNPRECEDENTED STEP OF
APPROVING THE PLAN AND THEN
IMMEDIATELY REPEALING IT.
MEMBERS OF THE LEGISLATURE’S
VETERANS AND LEGAL AFFAIRS
COMMITTEE ARE SKEPTICAL OF THE
CASINO CAMPAIGN, CITING, AMONG
OTHER ISSUES, TRANSPARENCY
ISSUES IN STATE ETHICS FILINGS.
>>EVEN THE SAVVIEST VOTER
COULDN’T LOOK ONLINE TO SEE WHO
WAS TRULY BACKING THIS.
THAT’S ONLY BEEN UNVEILED IN THE
LAST COUPLE OF WEEKS, SO I THINK
THEY SIGNED THE SHEETS WITH A
FALSE PRETENSE, AND BECAUSE OF
THAT, I THINK ALL OPTIONS ARE ON
THE TABLE FOR THIS ONE.
STEVE: CASINO BACKERS HAVE NOT
RESPONDED TO OUR EMAILED REQUEST
FOR A COMMENT TODAY.
THE STATE ETHICS COMMISSION
COULD FINE THE CAMPAIGN MILLIONS
