It was a busy morning at the Statehouse and Capitol Thursday.

Sen. Del Marsh‘s gambling bill has cleared the Senate Tourism and Marketing Committee by a 5-3 vote. That means the conversation will continue as the Legislature attempts to find more revenue sources that don’t include tax increases. The bill allows voters to choose to accept gaming expansion or not.

We’ll report on reactions as we get them.
