Table Gaming in WV 2007 edition

The West Virginia Legislature will try again this year to pass a Table Gaming Law. The law would make it legal for any of the four race tracks in the State to have Table Gaming such as POKER, BlackJack, Craps, Roulette, etc.

This year's incarnation of the bill may hinge on who ultimately votes to allow the Gaming to take place. Some want everyone in the state to vote in a state-wide referendum, while others want only the 4 counties with race tracks to vote.

I find it amazing how they are getting off their butts about this only after Pennsylvania voted to put in slots. The legislature now has to act quickly to keep their gaming edge or lose out on revenue and jobs - lots of jobs.

I will be tracking this pretty closely, so stay tuned.

Enjoy the Pokery Goodness!
