Topeka — Gov. Kathleen Sebelius will propose the state get into the casino business.
Matthew All, Sebelius' chief counsel, told lawmakers today that the administration will propose expanded gambling with a resort-destination casino near the Kansas Speedway.
Casinos can exist in Kansas only if they are state-owned and operated or run by American Indian tribes. Currently there are four tribal casinos and no state-owned casinos.
All said Sebelius would propose a bill to go the state-owned route, though he said that negotiations will continue with Indian tribal interests to build a casino.
He said the Sebelius proposal will be filed as legislation within two weeks.
