KS House Rejects Proposal to Challenge State-Owned Casino

The Kansas House has rejected an attempt to challenge a proposed state-owned casino south of Wichita. The resolution would have directed the attorney general to file a lawsuit against the Racing and Gaming Commission over the group’s decision to allow a casino near Mulvane. Opponents of the lawsuit said it would send a negative message to companies looking to locate in Kansas. Representative Judith Loganbill is a Democrat from Wichita.

Some critics of the casino plan say the commission jumped the gun by awarding the contract to Iowa-based Peninsula Gaming. That company is under investigation for allegedly violating Iowa’s campaign finance laws. Representative Steve Brunk, Wichita Republican, says the charges may violate standards set in the casino law.

Company officials have said they're confident the case will be resolved in their favor, and they have started work on the 260 million dollar casino.
