Kansas Senate to debate bill for reviving KCK racing park

TOPEKA, Kan. —The Kansas Senate is preparing to debate a bill designed to revive a Kansas City-area dog and horse racing park with slot machines.

The Senate was taking up the measure Thursday, a day after a committee approved it.

The bill would help The Woodlands in Kansas City, Kansas. The park closed in 2008.

A 2007 law allowed slot machines at dog and horse tracks but said the state would claim 40 percent of the net machine revenues. Track owners have said the state's share is too high for slots to be profitable.

The bill would decrease the state's share to 22 percent for The Woodlands.

No one opposed the bill in committee, but some lawmakers have worried that its passage would hurt a nearby casino owned by the state lottery.
