After the way Sedgwick County commissioners recoiled from a casino advisory vote, it’s been remarkable to see commissioners in Harvey County and, as of Monday, Marion County quickly and unanimously find the political will to approve such ballots. None of this may matter, of course, should legislative proposals to expand gambling collapse again next spring. But should the pressure to find new revenue at last prove greater than opposition to gambling, each of these other counties will be well-positioned to welcome a casino that will suck money out of Sedgwick County.
