Gambling isn't coming to Hawaii anytime soon

HONOLULU >> All proposals to bring some form of gambling to Hawaii have busted out.

The legislation included ideas for a standalone casino in Waikiki, bingo on Hawaiian home lands, shipboard gambling, slot machines or a multistate lottery.

None cleared its committee before Friday's deadline for non-budget bills to advance for a vote in their originating chamber.

Hawaii and Utah are the only states that don't allow any gambling.

All the House measures passed at least one committee before failing.

The Waikiki casino measure died on the House floor last month. Efforts for bingo, slots and shipboard gambling were never scheduled for hearings in either the Judiciary Committee or Finance Committee.

The multistate lottery measure in the Senate never received a committee hearing.
