Racino Bill Introduced at the Capital
Two lawmakers have introduced a “racino” bill at the capital. The bill would allow slot machines and casino-style gambling at the Canterbury Park horse racing track. The tax proceeds from the gambling would be used to help pay for a new Vikings stadium.
The Vikings have a plan for a new $1.1 billion stadium that would be in Arden Hills. The chief House sponsor of the stadium bill doesn’t think its a good idea to have a Vikings stadium linked to gambling.
