The group that wants you to vote no on Proposition A in November, kicked off their grass roots campaign with stops across the state today. The Casino Watch Committee is known as an anti-gambling group and it’s no surprise that they’re against Proposition A which would repeal the loss limit, not require identification to enter a casino and restrict casinos in the state to the ones already built or in the process of being built.
"Know that there is a group that’s pro gambling expansion and I am a group that’s historically been antigambling expansion and there’s another group of legislatures that don’t like what this is doing to school funding and then we got the highway that’s worried about these player cards," said Casino Watch spokesman Evelio Silvera. "How many issues do you know that all of these opposite folks the candidates for governor that different elected officials on both sides of the isle that find themselves together saying, whoa, you need to watch out for proposition a we should be voting no on this thing on November 4 th ."
Proponents of the issue say it will lift outdated regulations that hurt Missouri casinos competitiveness and will pump more money into education.
