St. Gabriel Downs

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal vetoed a bill that would have allowed voters to essentially expand gaming in Iberville Parish. The bill would have allowed voters to approve an off-track betting facility in the parish as well as a slot casino at St. Gabriel Downs racetrack. The governor said he was going to veto the bill before it was passed out of the Senate. Jindal opposed the legislation because he said it “contemplates the expansion of gaming.” Supporters said the bill could have helped create 1,000 jobs in the parish and generate up to 0 million for the state.
