The second of two measures to authorize Oregon’s first non-tribal casino has qualified for the November ballot.

 

The Secretary of State's Office says that the proponents turned in enough valid signatures.  The measure is a companion to a separate initiative that was certified for the ballot last week.  Taken together, the two measures would allow two Lake Oswego businessmen and a Canadian investment firm to build a private casino in Wood Village.  Currently, casinos can only be operated by American Indian tribes.  Proponents say the casino would create jobs and generate revenue for schools; but critics say it would take gambling dollars from tribal casinos and the Oregon Lottery.
