Another extension, and another delay. On Tuesday, casino developers requested - and received - more time to work on the proposed Sumner County Casino.
The developers say they need the extra time to see if two Kansas laws change. It will be up to the Governor to determine how much of an extension developers receive.
Developers say if they don't get more time -- they'll abandon the entire project, which is fine with one group.
Stand Up for Kansas kept casinos out of Sedgwick county three years ago. "I'm not convinced that we ever will see a casino in Sumner County," said Glenn Thompson of Stan Up for Kansas. For nearly three decades, he has fought to keep casinos out of the Sunflower State. He reflected on his most recent victory - keeping a casino out of Sedgwick County in 2007.
"I think it's very ironic that the casino industry was promoting these as destination casinos," said Thompson, "and now they're finally admitting that they are actually dependent on revenue from Wichita."
