Lawmakers in one city are asking the state to consider allowing casino gambling in their hometown. Memphis city leaders are hoping to bring casinos to Shelby County.

Two lawmakers have already filed bills that would create a committee to study the plan then report findings back. Regardless, experts say the proposal has low odds of passing.

Traditional forms of casino gambling are banned by the Tennessee constitution and would require a constitutional amendment.
