TOPEKA - The state supreme court convened last Wednesday to consider the constitutionality of the state's plan to expand casino gambling. The case was filed by the Kansas attorney general, at the request of Governor Kathleen Sebelius, and against the Kansas Lottery for the purpose of testing the state's new gambling law.
The final ruling will affect more than $1 billion in construction of proposed casino resorts and the resulting $200 million in annual state tax revenues.
The Supreme Court ruled in 1994 the constitution permitted a lottery owned and operated by the state. Justices also indicated a "lottery" might include slot machines and other games.
This law was upheld last February by Shawnee County District Court Judge Charles Andrews.
The Supreme Court could issue their decision as early as June 27, 2008.
