"One of the proposed initiatives filed Friday would repeal the constitutional ban on nontribal casinos in the state and direct the Legislature to authorize the operation of a single Oregon casino.

"Friday's other two proposed initiatives cite Multnomah Greyhound Park as the location for the state's only casino…"
