A Kansas Senate committee has introduced a gaming bill that could help reopening some dog and horse racing tracks. It would also make it easier to attract a casino developer to southeast Kansas. Dozens of advocates for the bill descended on the Statehouse yesterday (THUR) to lobby for it. KPR’s Stephen Koranda has more.
The legislation could face opposition from Governor Same Brownback, who has said he believes lawmakers have enough on their plates and should focus on other issues instead of gaming bills.
