KANSAS CITY, MO - Wild Rose Entertainment is the sole applicant with the Missouri Gaming Commission for a Sugar Creek casino license. Their proposal for building a new $135 million riverboat casino has been under consideration by the commission for the past year.
Monday the gaming commission will meet in special session to consider a "moratorium" on future casino licenses. "There has been a change and it's all going to be discussed Monday," said LeAnn McCarthy, a commission spokeswoman. If approved, the Sugar Creek casino may be dead.
State Rep. Ray Salva, who promoted the project in his district, said, "I'm appalled they would go against the legislature on this. Bills for similar moratoriums have been defeated in both the House and Senate this year."
He said the commission may be acting too hastily. The legislature is deciding whether to place an initiative on the fall ballot to limit the number of casinos licenses.
