Instant Racing a product of democracy, casino-style

My article Instant Racing's Bizarre Path to Approval Bizarre appears in today's Lexington Herald Leader. Here's an excerpt:
A law that would allow gambling on racing of dead horses was approved by a state legislative committee in May when, in the only vote ever taken by elected lawmakers on the issue, one legislator voted in favor of the measure and four voted against it.
The law began its journey through the approval process when racetracks and the Beshear administration sued no one and cleared its final hurdle on its way to implementation in June when another legislative committee decided to do nothing.
Welcome to democracy casino-style.
