    Channel 4 KRNV.com: Local News and Weather for Reno-Tahoe Region: Reid seeks to clarify stimulus rule on casinos

    Sen. Harry Reid, D-Nev., sent the following letter to President Barack Obama regarding the use of economic recovery funds Friday. Text of the letter follows:

    The President
    The White House
    1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
    Washington, DC 20500

    Dear Mr. President:

    I am writing to you about an issue relating to the implementation of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (AARA, P.L. No. 111-5) that is critical to the State of Nevada. Section 1604 of the AARA included a prohibition on the use of funds appropriated by the bill for certain facilities, including casinos and other gaming establishments. It has come to my attention that solicitations and related guidance relating to requests for funding under the bill includes language to implement section 1604 that is vague and overly broad, causing confusion and discouraging many eligible beneficiaries in Nevada from applying for funding.

    What do you think welfare does? There are a lot of people in this country with a gambling problem that haven't yet been to a casino. Lottery tickets anyone?
