Republican Al Carlson is introducing an amendment Wednesday that would allow for up to six privately-owned, state-regulated casinos.

O

pponents say a change to the state Constitution to allow more casinos would hurt American Indian gambling facilities and relationships with tribes.

Carlson’s original proposal would forbid state casinos from being built within 20 miles of a reservation. The amendment would double that distance.

The new proposal would allow the casinos anywhere in the state. Previously, the casinos also would not be allowed within five miles of a city of more than 5,000 people.

If approved by the Legislature, voters could decide the issue in the June 2018 primary.
