Petitions To Bring The Gambling Issue Before The Voters Have Been Submitted
The petitions to put expanded gambling before Nebraska voters have been turned in…and now reports of how much it's costing both sides to campaign on the issue have also have been submitted. An anti-gambling group, called gambling with the good life, has raised 79-thousand dollars since early June. And Omaha billionaire Warren Buffett has contributed ten-thousand dollars to the effort. The industry coalition supporting expanded gambling, called “Keep The Money In Nebraska, is reporting that they've raised one-point-26-million dollars. Leaders say almost all of that money went toward the petition process.
