Draft casino rules to be considered Thursday

Posted By on Wed, Jan 9, 2019 at 1:54 PM

The state Racing Commission, which will regulate casino gambling under the new Amendment 100, meets at 11 a.m. Thursday and is expected to begin a 30-day comment period on rules regulating licensing and casino operations.

Byron Freeland, attorney for the commission, said the rules are modeled in many respects after rules in Nevada, long home to legal gambling. But an attorney who's been following the process says many of the rules on licensing were adopted on suggestions from Arkansas attorneys for groups interested in operating casinos here.

What's not currently available is a purely independent assessment of casino regulation.

In case you're interested, here's the latest draft going before the commission tomorrow.
