"I think we will be at the table" with gambling interests to hammer out a casino proposal to submit to voters, said Louis Burgher, chairman of the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce.
The chamber has been part of the opposition to expanding gambling beyond a state-run lottery, local keno and horse racing.But the chamber's membership is showing more interest in adding casino gambling, something offered across the Missouri River in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Burgher said.Iowa legalized casino gambling in 1989.
A recent survey of 3,289 chamber members included a question about whether Nebraska should allow casino gambling.Of the 427 members who responded, 68.3 percent said "yes," Burgher said.
"Snapshots don't mean much, but trends do," Burgher said."We are seeing a trend."
The chamber has not formally dropped its opposition to expanded gambling, but the organization's executive committee probably will adopt a new position on gambling before the Legislature convenes its next regular session Jan. 8, Burgher said.
