Description

Two articles take a critical look at Arkansas' efforts to open casinos in the state. One story looks at an amendment that gives the state's gaming commission no power to screen the criminal and financial history of applicants who want to enter the state's gaming industry. Furthermore, Proposed Amendment 5 would grant a "casino monopoly to a single enterprise -- Arkansas Casino Corp...None of the other key states with land-based casinos have written monopolies into their laws." A second article tells how Robert W. Buchholz, a Dallas attorney and officer of Arkansas Casino Corp., paid a private Nevada company $180,000 to round up enough signatures to put an amendment on the 2000 ballot that would give the company authority to run six casinos in Arkansas.
