The Coeur d’Alene Tribe is calling on lawmakers to override Gov. Butch Otter’s veto of SB 1011, the bill repealing authorization for betting on “historical horse racing” in Idaho, which has led to the installation of slot machine-like “instant racing” terminals at three Idaho locations. “Idahoans asked our governor to defend the Idaho Constitution by repealing instant racing, and sadly the governor made a clear choice to look the other way,” CdA Tribal Chairman Chief Allan said in a statement. “He turned his back on the Legislature and Idahoans in order to protect his friends and financiers.”
