Casino opponents push ballot measure to repeal state gaming law

A group of casino opponents says that more than 100 volunteers will fan out across the state this weekend to gather enough signatures to place a referendum on the ballot next year to repeal the state’s gambling law.

The organization, Repeal the Casino Deal, needs just under 70,000 certified signatures by Wednesday, and John Ribeiro, their chairman, said Thursday that they are nearing the target and will stand outside supermarkets this weekend to reach their goal.
