Prop A would be boon to Missouri casinos

By Maria Hickey, KWMU


St. Louis – Few would argue against sending more money to Missouri's public schools.

Proposition A on Tuesday's ballot asks voters around the state if a tax increase on casinos should be the way the state provides that funding.

Most industries would fight such a tax increase, but as KWMU's Maria Hickey reports, the gaming industry has been pouring millions into the campaign to pass Prop A, because it has much to gain.
