Missouri House Endorses Moratorium on New Casinos

April 3, 2008

JEFFERSON CITY, MO - The House voted yesterday to ban new casino licenses until 2010. The ban directly blocks the new Sugar Creek casino in Kansas City.

It could also block a new casino under construction in St. Louis, except the billís author, Rep. Shannon Cooper, says he will work to exclude that one from his legislation. Casinos do not receive their license until construction is finished. The bill will have another vote by House members before going to the Senate.

Rep. Shannon Cooper said "We need to step back for a couple of years and need to analyze what's going on everywhere before we start throwing licenses out."

The Senate is considering its own legislation to restrict new casinos. Their bill would not allow any more casinos than those currently operating or under construction. It would also repeal a law that limits a gamblerís loss to $500 every two hours, and it would increase the taxes on casinos to expand state services including the state scholarship program.
