CARSON CITY — Senate Majority Leader Steven Horsford and Assembly Speaker Barbara Buckley, both D-Las Vegas, said today they would oppose a move to lower the minimum age to gamble in Nevada to 18.
“I don’t think there would be much support at this point,” Horsford said. “I would be opposed to such a policy.”
Buckley said, “I don’t have a strong interest in changing the gaming age as a way of dealing with our budget problems. Of course, there is the argument that if you can vote or go to war at 18, you should be allowed to gamble.”
