On Monday signatures were submitted in favor of adding new casinos to horse racetracks in Arapahoe, Mesa, and Pueblo counties. The group that turned in the signatures is hopeful to have the gaming issue added to the November ballot.

Coloradans for Better Schools is the group behind the signatures.

Revenues from the proposed racetrack casinos would go to Colorado K-12 public and charter schools. It is estimated that the schools could receive annually over $100 million dollars. The group sees the casinos as a way to help schools raise money without raising additional taxes.

There are three proposed horse racetracks that the group would like to offer casino gaming. One of them is Aurora's Arapahoe Park.

Currently there is only casino gaming allowed in certain areas of the state. Southwestern Colorado allows for Indian casinos. There are also casinos in Central City, Blackhawk, and Cripple Creek

For a initiative to be added to a ballot, 86,105 signatures are required. 136,342 signatures were submitted.

Return to Colorado Casinos.
