(WICHITA, Kan.) — It was voted down in 2007, but now the state is looking at the issue again. The owner of the Wichita Greyhound Park is asking the state to allow slot machines to be installed.
Proponents for the expansion of gambling made their case in front of a State Senate committee in Topeka Tuesday. Opponants will make their case Wednesday.
If its approved, Sedgwick County residents will get to vote on it. The plan calls for 400 to 1,200 slots to be installed.
Later in the week, the committee will hear arguments about the possibility of making changes to the law that allowed smoking inside state owned casinos.
