A proposed bill that would allow for a new casino to be built in the southeast
area of the state has been rejected by the Kansas Senate. The veto on the bill
also means horse and dog racing tracks will also not be allowed to operate slot
In 2007 a bill was introduced that allowed for the development of casinos owned
by the state. Race tracks would also be able to operate gaming machines.
Wichita, Dodge City, and Kansas City have all built casinos.
Under the current law, a $225 million investment would have to be made by casino
developers. The proposed bill would have lowered the investment to $50 million.
Supporters of the bill state that the cost of the current investment cost
discourages developers from bringing new casinos to the state.
The senate vote tally was 25 to 14 against the bill.
