A group hoping to develop casinos in three Arkansas counties says it has turned in another 50,000 signatures in its effort to place a constitutional amendment on the Nov. 8 ballot.
The group Arkansas Wins would build casinos in Boone, Miller and Washington counties - all of which are border counties.
Arkansas Wins spokesman Robert Coon says the group delivered the petitions Monday to the Secretary of State's office. Late last month, the Secretary of State's office said it had verified 63,725 signatures on the petition, but 84,859 are needed. Because the group had attained more than 75 percent of the total needed, it was granted more time to gather additional signatures.
The Secretary of State's office did not immediately return calls for comment. It must still verify the signatures.
