      Nebraska lawmakers plan to resume a debate over a measure that would ask voters to approve betting on pre-recorded horse races.

      Opponents in the legislature view it as a form of expanded gambling and have mounted a filibuster to delay the vote.

      Supporters argue the measure would save jobs in the state's horse-racing industry and, at the same time, generate revenue for the state.

      If it is approved by lawmakers, the measure would appear on the 2014 general-election ballot.
