Hawaii casino proposal defeated

Hawaii casino proposal defeated

The Hawaii legislature's Committee on Finance has sealed the fate of a proposal to introduce casino gambling on the islands, at least as far as the current sessions are concerned.

The proposal estimated that up to $86 million annually could be realised in tax revenues, helping to close budgetry gaps, and that the availability of casino action would enhance the state's tourist potential.

However, public opinion in Finance Committee public hearings proved to be overwhelmingly against the proposal, and House Bill 2251 was put on the back burner this week.
