Nebraska Casino Vote Depends on Petition Count
As reported by the Nebraska State Paper: "Depending on how fast signatures can be counted, and the time appellate courts need to review the matter, Nebraskans might have a chance to vote in November on a plan for building three casinos. "District Judge Karen Flowers ruled Thursday that signatures on initiative petitions seeking a vote on the gambling proposal should be counted. "Attorney General Jon Bruning promptly took the case from Flowers' court and went down the street to the state Court of Appeals. "Secretary of State John Gale previously said the petition proposal was basically the same as one that went to the people in 2004."
