Otter Vetoes ‘Instant Racing’ Repeal

Gov. Butch Otter has issued his veto message on SB 1011, the bill to repeal “instant racing” in Idaho. You can read it here. It includes a letter to the state Racing Commission asking for an indefinite moratorium on the addition of any new instant racing machines at existing facilities, or licensing of any new locations for the gambling machines/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise.

Question: I'm not surprised. Are you?
