GAMBLING BAN: Senate Passes Change


Iowa senators voted to change a law that aims to help problem gamblers Tuesday.

The Senate voted 46 to 2 to approve a bill that would allow Iowans who voluntarily banned themself from casinos and racetracks to apply to lift that exclusion.

The current law says the ban is for life, but the new bill would allow people to apply to lift the ban after five years.

The legislation now moves on to the House for consideration.
