I'd be all for this if it did not bring additional funds into the State coffers. We have to find a way to putting the brakes on our elected officials who spend money like a meth head on a binge.

The last thing we need is to feed the addiction our legislator's for spending money. Shut down the spending, then address issues such as Racino.

The time to act is now! get these in for a couple years and you will have all the revenue needed to build the state a casino at the Mall of America. The Native's shouldnt be the only ones to get the revenue from this!

What are they waiting for. This should be a no brainer. Money into the state at without raising taxes. Come on legislators wake up, I would rather spend my money at Canterbury or Running Aces instead of the indian casino's. Take a look around and see what it has done for other states especially Pennsylvania. If this doesn't go thru you can say goodbye to my taxes as I will move out of state and let you freeloaders live here and all its benefits.

Comments like yours absolutely amaze me.

I can understand the frustration with this goofy State and the tax policies. But to threaten to move if you can't have betting at either Running Aces or Canterbury? That is just plain stupid.
