Southeast KS Lawmaker Tries Procedural Move to Advance Casino Bill

gamblingPhoto from sxc.huA Kansas lawmaker is trying to advance a bill that would make it less costly to build a casino in southeast Kansas. The legislation would reduce the investment required for a company to build the state-owned casino. Representative Bob Grant, a Frontenac (FRAWNT-nack) Democrat, made a motion to pull the bill out of committee and bring it to the floor for consideration.


Lawmakers will vote on the motion tomorrow (FRI). No developers have been willing to invest the required $225 million to build a new state-owned casino in southeast Kansas. The bill would lower the required investment to $100 million, but that would only affect the southeast Kansas casino.
