Rick Alm really nailed it in his article on the flawed Kansas casino law (12/9, Business, “Kansas’ casino law should be tossed”). How stupid can the lawmakers be not to allow slots at the Woodlands and put 500 people to work, plus the revenue that the state would receive?
Our Kansas lawmakers sit around crying about the budget shortage but refuse to put people to work and generate revenue from the track. These so-called lawmakers should go up to Council Bluffs to the dog track and see how many people from Kansas City are there.
Get your heads out of the sand, Kansas lawmakers, and generate some revenue for the state, or start looking for another soft job you can screw up if you’re still in office after the next election.
