In response to a question during the debate, both Hulshof and Nixon said they opposed Proposition A – a Nov. 4 ballot measure that would repeal Missouri’s unique $500 loss limit for gamblers, cap the number of new casino licenses and increase casino taxes, with the new money going to public schools. “I support continuing the $500 loss limit,” Nixon said. “I think the people of Missouri have spoken on that” by approving the loss limits as part of the ballot initiative that authorized riverside casinos in the 1990s. Hulshof said he also opposed the ballot measure because it would do away with the electronic gamblers’ identification cards, which are used in conjunction with the loss limit.
