(WICHITA, Kan.) — The group known as "Wichita Wins" says it made progress in Topeka on Thursday. “Wichita Wins” is made up of supporters who want to reopen four greyhound tracks in the state.
The group left Wichita early Thursday morning and met with Senate members during their trip to Topeka.
They say a similar bill to the one they proposed dealing with reopening the tracks should be voted on in the next month.
Wichita Wins says if the legislation passes, the developer will spend $100 million on creating an entertainment facility which will provide state and local money.
The group also claims the changes will bring 500 or more jobs to Sedgwick County and more across the state.
Supporters say it's tough to drive by the Wichita greyhound park, the track closed several years ago and the outside continues to look worse each year it stays vacant.
