Governor's Statement on Bingo Bill Failure

"Clearly a lot of senators understand just how crooked this bill is now that they've had a chance to review it. This bill isn't about gambling, it isn't about letting the people vote. It's about pure, unadulterated corruption and legalizing a no-bid casino monopoly for a few politically-connected gambling bosses. Senators who voted to stop this corrupt bill should be commended for their vote."
