Our general assembly has the power to prevent this catastrophe. I hope they will use this power to prevent this bill from becoming law in our State.
Eight casinos in Kentucky will take billions of dollars from our people. It will create a new type of poverty, because of loss in family income, and some cases even the home. Casinos produce no product; they only drain away Kentuckians capital.
Many Kentuckians will become addicted to gambling. Two million dollars is included in the bill to treat these new addicts, WHAT A SHAME. A good governor, House members, and Senators SHOULD NOT BE IN THE BUSINESS OF CREATING ADDICTS. Kentuckians please contact your senator and representatives and the GOVERNOR to never cast a vote for casino gambling.
On behalf of all Kentuckians, thank you. Robert McCray
