Hawaii and gambling

February 07, 2011 8:51 PM by Ray Poirier

Only two states – Hawaii and Utah – have no gambling whatsoever. But the number may be dropping to one.

Hawaii legislators are being asked to consider a constitutional amendment that would create limited gambling. A House committee has been given the legislation to review and no action has been taken.

Should the committee approve the bill, and it eventually becomes law, Hawaii’s citizens will be asked to vote on the gambling issue at the next election.

The bill permits slot machines in designated resort areas on the island of Oahu. A separate bill would allow Hawaii to join a multi-state lottery.
