Bill looks to cut Keno wait time

Another bill being proposed would cut the minimum time keno players have to wait between games.

Sen. Russ Karpisek of Wilber says the bill would cut time from five minutes to three minutes, which could allow time for more games.

Lobbyists say the tax revenue from the games help to pay for police cruisers, park renovation, and substance abuse treatment programs.

Opponents argue the bill could build gambling addictions.

Lawmakers rejected a similar measure last year.
