Propositions for California

Looking at the next proposition concerning gambling let's ponder proposition 68. When examined we find it is supported by gambling interests in our state which are not tribal. Race tracks and card rooms totalling some 16 non-tribal entities would like to be allowed to operate 30,000 slot machines. In exchange, they would agree to pay 1/3 the revenue to a fund they create called the Gaming Revenue Trust Fund.

It doesn't sound like an idea we can trust. Increased gaming benefits no one except those who operate the facilities.
