Fletcher Calls for Board to Reconsider Keno

Governer-Elect Ernie Fletcher says expanding Kentucky's lottery to include Keno is probably illegal.

In a statement issued Friday, Fletcher called on the lottery board to reconsider its action.

Last week, the board voted to introduce Keno, a casino style game that could be played over terminals in bars, restaurants and other locations.

Fletcher says adding Keno to the Kentucky Lottery could be unconstitutional and suggests it go through the courts for a decision.
