United States.- Although Nebraska voters approved casino gambling at the state’s horse racing tracks last year, it will take several more months before any casinos are approved as the state continues to work on regulations.

Tom Sage, executive director of the state Racing and Gaming Commission, said: “It’s a slow process” but that he he hopes to have proposed gaming statutes available soon. The formal application process is not expected until next year.

The commission has hired a consultant to help write the rules and regulations for casino gaming in the state. Once the commission approves the regulatory framework, it will need to be approved by Governor Pete Ricketts and Attorney General Doug Peterson before being officially recognised by the Secretary of State’s Office.
