Governor Steve Beshear’s proposal for a constitutional amendment to expand gaming could get a big boost soon.
State Senator Damon Thayer, a Republican, says it’s very likely he will sponsor Beshear’s amendment this session. Thayer has been working with Beshear on the gambling issue this session, giving the amendment leverage it hasn't had before.
“I think that’s something I’m considering strongly and has a high probability,' Thayer says. "But there’ll be a time and a place we announce that once I make that decision.”
