The Legislature will begin debate Friday on some expanded gaming bills that, you guessed it, mostly exclude Sedgwick County. One would allow casinos only in the Kansas City and Pittsburg areas. Another bill would allow gambling at casinos and racetracks in Wyandotte, Crawford and Cherokee counties and, for five years, limit new gambling in Sedgwick and Ford counties to slot machines at racetracks.
If that happens, our editorialtoday argues, it will confirm that the only Wichita-area voices being heard on this issue in Topeka are coming from the anti-gambling members of our legislative delegation.
