Wasden: It may be time for a state gaming commission in Idaho

It may be time for Idaho to establish a gaming commission, Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden told “Idaho Reports” in an interview for tonight’s program. “The question is: Do we have gaming in this state? The answer is yes, we do,” Wasden said. “Perhaps the time has come to have a gaming commission that actually then has the authority, ability and power to regulate that.” He said his office has no authority to regulate tribal gaming, horse racing or bingo, under current law. You can read more here at Melissa Davlin’s “Idaho Reports” blog; the program airs at 8 tonight.
