The Goal

To ensure three state ballot measures are passed that will do exactly what our name implies – keep that money and boost local economies here in our home state.

What’s in it for Nebraskans?

What’s in it for Nebraskans?

$500 million stays in state each year.

Nebraskans spend hundreds of millions of dollars annually gambling at casinos in the bordering states (Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota, Missouri, Colorado and Wyoming), all of which have legalized casino gaming.

$50-$120 million annual tax revenue.

Expanding gaming would bring in millions in new tax revenue that could be used to aid property tax relief and education across the state.

Casinos limited to licensed horse racing tracks.

Nebraska won’t be Las Vegas. The measures will limit casinos to the licensed horse racing tracks across the state.

Ag, Economic & Tourism Boosts.

Tying casino gaming to horse tracks also will create new jobs in the state’s ag, construction, and entertainment industries.

The Good Life stays that way.

Statistics show no correlation between gaming and social problems like problem gambling, bankruptcy, divorce, crime, etc. In fact, Iowa and South Dakota (with casinos) have either the same or lower rates than Nebraska on crime and similar data.

According to an April 3, 2019 Lincoln Journal Star Editorial:
"Nebraska has long needed structural reforms to how farmland and ranchland are valued to reduce the crushing burden of property taxes that has fallen on agricultural producers.

The Nebraska Department of Revenue reports that property taxes levied on land zoned as agricultural increased from $476 million statewide in 2007 to $1.2 billion in 2017 – an increase of 152 percent in a decade. This trend, of course, flew in the face of commodity prices that plummeted over the same span."*

Legalizing gaming in Nebraska could go a long way to reducing the property tax burden for agricultural producers -- and home owners. With an estimated $500 million a year (or more) leaving Nebraska to be spent in neighboring states' casinos, that's $50-120 million in annual tax revenue we are missing out on to help with property tax relief.

Seems like Keeping the Money in Nebraska with legalized gaming is a positive start for our ag producers.

Gaming by the Numbers: Our neighboring state of Iowa is home to commercial and tribal gaming operators and gaming suppliers that support more than 17,000 Iowans and $779.2 million in tax revenue -- per year! That's $2.8 billion in total economic impact. Per. Year.*

Care to guess how much of that is coming from Nebraskans?

Let's keep that money right here in Nebraska. Your support of the initiatives by signing the petitions and voting yes next fall will help create a better life for Nebraskans!

The Good Life can be even better...
On average, $951 leaves Nebraska for casinos in surrounding states every minute – that’s more than $1.36 million every day! Keep the Money in Nebraska is working to make sure that money stays in state and helps make the Good Life even better.

Expanding gaming in Nebraska will bring in $50-$120 million in new tax revenue that could be used to aid property tax relief and more across the state instead of sending it to all our surrounding states.

You can help boost Nebraska's economy.

Petitioners are around the state collecting signatures to have three state ballot measures included in the 2020 elections. Signing the petitions will give Nebraskans the opportunity to stop the flood of our money from flowing into Iowa, South Dakota, Kansas and Colorado.
