Warren County voters reject casino proposal
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Voters have rejected a proposal that would have allowed casino gambling in south-central Iowa's Warren County.
The Des Moines Register reports that unofficial results show more than 60 percent of voters rejected the measure.
Warren County Citizens for Good Jobs and Wild Rose Entertainment had proposed building a casino, hotel, events center and bowling alley in northwest Norwalk, near Iowa Highways 5 and 28.
The Register says state law now prohibits Warren County voters from considering another gambling bill before 2021.
Nearly a third of eligible voters in the county cast ballots on the question.
