A bill placing the issue of gaming at racetracks in Oklahoma on the Nov. 2 general election ballot passed the state House by a 58-42 vote on Wednesday. The bill, previously passed by the state Senate, supersedes legislation passed earlier in the session enabling gaming devices at the state's tracks.
