Hawaii Coalition Against Legalized Gambling (HCALG)

HCALG has been told by informed legislators that the next session will have gambling bills heard. (We had a large number of pro-gambling bills introduced last session [only two of the resolutions had hearings], but they failed to pass). Pro-gambling letters are now shifting a bit from attacking us to attacking The Honolulu Advertiser.

Tennessee, one of the three states without legalized gambling will have a measure on their Nov. 5, 2002 ballot that would change their constitution to allow the lottery. Leaders of the National Coalition Against Gambling Expansion have stated " Next they will come after Hawai'i and Utah." Here is the NCALG link: www.ncalg.org/new/facts-lottery.htm.
