Eight casinos in Kentucky would generate one-point-seven billion dollars a year in Kentucky, according to a study released by the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.

The casinos would produce that money after they had been in operation a full year, the study says. The study was paid for by pro-gambling interests, and has its critics. The Family Foundation, which opposes expanded gambling, says the money spent on gambling wouldn't be spent on other businesses, and therefore would not benefit the state.

Casino gambling is expected to be a major issue as the General Assembly session moves forward.
