Senator Russell Olson (R-8/Madison) can celebrate his greatest legislative victory yet: yesterday Governor M. Michael Rounds signed into law HB 1095, which allows economic development corporations to conduct bingo and lotteries. Senator Olson was primary sponsor.
Since job creation isn't working, the LAIC can turn to gambling to build Madison's economy. Maybe the LAIC will convert the old Wenk's plant across the street into a city bingo parlor. Dwaine Chapel can get an old-time saloon keeper's suit and call the numbers. Julie Gross can line up some Chamber members to dress up as showgirls and serve drinks. We can all go downtown and have more fun on Friday night.
All thanks to the hard work of our state senator.
Pulling it from his . . . - In case you missed it, Rex did a stellar job tonight.
