Video Poker Vote - KLFY News 10

Video Poker Vote


The Iberia Parish Council has set Nov. 6 as the date for the voters to decide on legalizing video poker in the parish.  The council voted 10-3 Wednesday to set the election date.  Councilman Thomas Landry said he did not know how much money video poker would generate.  Councilman Curtis Baudoin said he was voting for it because he was tired of seeing parish residents spending their money on video poker in St. Mary and St. Martin Parishes.  Should voters vote to legalize video poker, the proposition would have to appear before the Legislature for final approval. Council members have said they will dedicate the tax revenue from video poker between the parish jail and road work.
