TOPEKA -After a 13-hour filibuster, gambling proponents found the Senate votes they needed early today to expand casino gaming across the state.
Following speeches that dragged late into Wednesday night, the Senate voted 21-19 — the minimum needed for passage — just after midnight to allow casinos in Sedgwick and three other counties and as many as 2,800 slot machines at horse and dog racetracks, including Wichita Greyhound Park.
Oklahoma has it. Is Arkansas going to get it? If it does we may be seeing another song and dance from the anti-gaming groups in Branson. At least, that is the suggestion from some in Branson. The Missouri Senate...I'm gonna save this for another post. In the meantime can someone tell me something nice about Senator Bartle?
