ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) -- Supporters of a plan to open new casinos in Detroit, Grand Rapids, Lansing and four other cities across the state are expected to discuss the issue at a Thursday afternoon press conference in Romulus.
"Michigan is Yours" says in a release that its ballot initiative focuses on expanding the number of casinos to help build the state's economy.
The plan also calls for new casinos in Romulus, Saginaw, Benton Harbor and Mount Clemens. The casino effort failed to make the 2010 state ballot.
Detroit already has three casinos. New casinos could require the approval of Michigan voters, as well as other state or federal approval, depending on details of how they might be run.
