When Kansans go to the polls tomorrow, they'll vote on a constitutional amendment which would allow nonprofit organizations to hold fundraising raffles.
"A proposed Kansas constitutional amendment would make it legal for churches, schools, veterans groups and other nonprofit organizations to hold charitable raffles. The proposal on Tuesday’s ballot would allow a limited kind of gambling as a fundraiser, a practice that’s legal in Missouri and most other states. . . . Gov. Sam Brownback had vetoed previously legislation on the grounds that such games violated the state constitution. This low-profile amendment would eliminate that barrier." -- Diane Stafford, the Kansas City Star
