I am voting no on Missouri Proposition A for gambling reform, because it will restrict the number of casinos to those already built or being built. If someone wants to build a new casino, they will simply go across the state line to do it, taking customers away from Missouri businesses.
A more meaningful reform that is not included would be to remove the whole riverboat gambling scam and allow them to be built anywhere in the state, not just on rivers.
This proposition is a failed attempt to limit competition when we should encourage the market to determine where and how many casinos to build. After all, opening a new casino is a gamble.
