Bill to Ban Casino Boats Filed

7 March 2005

Las Vegas Sun

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- A bill to ban casino boats in South Carolina has been filed as the state Supreme Court debates whether to hear an appeal of a judge's ruling that local governments can't keep the boats from docking on their shores.

A judge ruled last year that Georgetown County couldn't ban the boats, saying that power remains only with the state.

The county is appealing, but in the meantime the House can try to do whatever it can, said Rep. Vida Miller, D-Pawleys Island, who filed the casino boat ban bill.

"We're just trying to show good faith to the county that we're doing all we can do at the state level," Miller said. "Georgetown County has done everything it can do."
