House Federal and State Affairs Committee Chairman Melvin Neufeld said Friday that his committee is drafting a bill to reduce the minimum investment required to operate a state-owned casino in the southeast Kansas gambling zone of Crawford and Cherokee counties.
The law requires a minimum $225 million investment, plus a $25 million privilege fee. The bill reduces the investment to $50 million, with a $5.5 million fee. That's the same amount that was required for the Dodge City casino being built.
