Jay Nixon has vetoed legislation that would have changed the penalties for youths trying to get into casinos with fake IDs.</p><p>Nixon said in a veto message Monday that the bill would have weakened laws that keep minors out of casinos. Missouri law already bars people younger than 21 from the gambling floor. Current law makes it a misdemeanor to show a false ID at a casino.</p><p>The legislation would have lowered that to an infraction but imposed a mandatory $500 fine.</p><p>The bill was backed by the casino industry.</p> Mon, 01 Jul 2013 21:50:36 +0000 Associated Press 36336 at http://kbia.org Gov.
