LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - Nebraskans voted on Tuesday to legalize casino gambling at state horse tracks.

The decision was divided into three initiatives and all three had to pass.

430: Creates a gaming commission to regulate and oversee gambling.

431 Details how it would be taxed with 20% tax and more than 2/3 of that going towards property tax relief.
