West Virginia: Republicans look to recall law allowing table games

I'll have to look some more into this law, but West Virginia's Republican Party is looking to try to recall a law allowing table games in Kanawha County.

The legislation that allowed table games in the four racetrack counties of West Virginia passed the Legislature March 8, 2007, after a few years of debate. It was approved in Hancock, Ohio and Kanawha counties. Jefferson County defeated the issue, but passed it in 2009.  
The bill also allowed for a vote five years after the bill passed for any county that wanted to change its mind on table games. A petition with 5 percent of the registered voters in the county is necessary for another vote.
