Conservatively Speaking

State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.

UPDATE: Because we just don't have enough casino gambling

Gambling


On September 29, 2009, I warned that there could be another huge explosion of gambling because the Wall Street Journal was reporting the Obama administration
is considering allowing tribes to operate casinos at great distances from their reservations.

The Associated Press has updated details:

“An Indian tribe wants to build a grand, $1.5 billion, Las Vegas-style casino resort on a swath of land overlooking San Francisco Bay - a spot more than 100 miles from its tribal lands.

An Associated Press examination of federal records has found about a dozen tribes have filed applications to set up casinos on distant pieces of land, close to population centers. In six cases, including the Guidiville proposal, the resorts are slated for land more than 100 miles away.”


Some see a new outburst of gambling venues as a potential economic boom. However, I concur with California state Senator Loni Hancock who is quoted by the Associated Press:

"No family achieved economic stability through gambling."
