NC has taken worked to ban video poker in the state, now it may be about to reverse course.
Governor Perdue says she is entertaining the idea of whether to expand legalized gambling to control video poker while helping to generate money to close a large budget shortfall.
The legislature has approved three different machine bans since 2006. A ban on sweepstakes machines approved last year is tied up in the courts.
Republican leaders in the legislature are said to be lukewarm to the idea of legalizing video poker. What do you think? Good idea or bad?
