Kansas Official: Plans Not Firm for American Royal Project


TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A top Kansas Department of Commerce official says plans aren't firm for a development designed to lure the annual American Royal horse and livestock exhibition to Kansas from Kansas City, Missouri. Deputy Secretary Steve Kelly told the Kansas Senate Commerce Committee on Tuesday that plans for the Wyandotte County development have evolved and any discussion of it is speculative. The Associated Press on Monday obtained a department report that said the development "is assumed" to have 15 elements that include a hotel, a children's museum and 5,000-seat hockey arena. Several committee members later said they believe plans for the development were firm. The project's future is uncertain. Some legislators want to block Republican Governor Sam Brownback's administration from authorizing bonds backed by state sales tax revenues to help finance it.
