Kan. House debates forcing lawsuit over casino

Court News Posted on

The Kansas House is debating whether it should force the attorney general to file a lawsuit over a proposed state-owned casino south of Wichita.

A resolution being discussed Thursday would require Attorney General Derek Schmidt to sue the state Racing and Gaming Commission's over its decision to allow a casino near Mulvane.

Iowa-based Peninsula Gaming plans to build a $260 million casino complex 18 miles south of Wichita.

Critics question whether the commission's decision in January was premature.

They cite misdemeanor campaign finance charges pending against the company and two top executives in Iowa. Company officials have said they're confident the case will be resolved in their favor, and they've started work on the casino.

Kansas law allows one legislative chamber to direct the attorney general to file a lawsuit.
