ing, except lotteries operated by the state  and  the  sale  of  lottery
tickets  in  connection therewith as may be authorized and prescribed by
the legislature, the net proceeds of which shall be applied  exclusively
to  or  in  aid or support of education in this state as the legislature
may prescribe, [and] except pari-mutuel betting on horse races as may be
prescribed by the legislature and from which the state  shall  derive  a
reasonable  revenue  for  the  support  of government, AND EXCEPT CASINO

BY  THE LEGISLATURE shall hereafter be authorized or allowed within this
state; and the  legislature  shall  pass  appropriate  laws  to  prevent
offenses against any of the provisions of this section.
  S  2. Resolved (if the Senate concur), That the foregoing amendment be
referred to the first regular legislative session  convening  after  the
