Top Ky. House Democrats downplay chances to pass expanded gambling legislation

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Tuesday, February 11, 2014 4:47 PM EST

House Democratic leaders are downplaying chances to pass expanded gambling legislation that could bring casinos to Kentucky.

House Speaker Pro Tem Larry Clark said Tuesday the issue isn't dead, but it's "at the funeral home."

His comments come a day after Senate Republican leaders said there aren't enough votes to pass an expanded gambling measure in the Senate.

House leaders aren't budging on their insistence that the Senate take up the issue first.

Clark is sponsoring two gambling proposals. One would put the issue on the ballot for voters to decide whether to legalize casino gambling. A companion bill would specify how many casinos would be allowed and how the state's share of the revenue would be distributed.

Clark says he's still negotiating with racetrack owners in search of a compromise.
