As US online casinos and online gambling continue to move towards legitmacy, Paul Schumacher, Nebraska Senator is asking for support of a gambling expansion in the state. This amendment would permit the addition of gambling ventures and casinos without the need for voting. Schumaker’s plan is to use the proceeds from these ventures to give forty-nine percent to healthcare and fifty percent towards education.
Connecting states have continued to add new casinos over the past years. One state in which a similar plan has succeeded is Iowa. Proceeds from gambling in that state have been used to keep the state going through these difficult economic times.
