DANVILLE, Va. (AP) — The city of Danville, Virginia, has put out a request for proposals from operators interested in bringing a casino to the city.
That’s according to the Danville Register and Bee, which also reported Monday that four operators have already expressed interest. The newspaper cited city email communications obtained through an open records request.
Virginia currently forbids casino gambling, but lawmakers have appeared more open to changing the law in recent years. The issue is expected to be heavily debated in the upcoming legislative session that begins in January.
