New effort started to strip Arkansas Constitution of provision allowing Pope County casino

casino

A Pope County anti-casino-gambling group has filed a new ballot petition to amend the Arkansas Constitution to abolish the portion of the 2018 casino amendment that allowed a casino in Pope County.

The Pope County permit has been the source of contention for the amendment. It further legitimized existing casinos in West Memphis and Hot Springs. And it paved the way for the now-operational Saracen casino in Pine Bluff.

The Gulfside Casino Partnership of Mississippi got the permit from the state Racing Commission. But the Cherokee Nation, another applicant for the permit, has challenged the process in court and it remains there.
