Senate votes down slots at Armstrong airport
 
BATON ROUGE, La. A House-backed bill that provides a separate gambling source of money for the New Orleans Saints -- tax money from slot machines at the Louis Armstrong International Airport -- died in the Senate today on a vote of 8-to-29. It was opposed by Governor Kathleen Blanco as an expansion of gambling.

The bill would have required approval from voters in Jefferson Parish, where the airport is located, before the slots could operate.
