Amendment For Casinos & Highway Funding


Backers of a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow construction of casinos in Arkansas have submitted a revised amendment to Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, who rejected the language in the first proposal last month.

The revised amendment, known as the The Arkansas Casino Gaming Amendment of 2018, was filed Monday (Feb. 26) by the citizens’ group Drive Arkansas Forward. It would authorize two new casinos – one in Jefferson County and one in Pope County – while enhancing the gaming operations at Oaklawn Park in Hot Springs and Southland Park Gaming and Racing in West Memphis.   MORE
