Editorial: Keep close watch on anti-gaming petition

"An anti-gambling coalition is none too pleased about having gaming machines at Oklahoma's pari-mutuel horse tracks, so it's trying to overturn the law that allowed them. A successful effort would have serious consequences.

Coalition chairman Rep. Forrest Claunch, R-Midwest City, a longtime opponent of gambling, lost his fight against SB 553 in the Legislature. It's unfortunate he and other coalition members feel this move is necessary, but they have every right to try. Their progress will be followed closely, for sure."
