Legislation creating the Kansas Agriculture Opportunity Act would lower the tax rate on electronic gaming machines in an effort to get racetracks to install them, and also increase the amount of revenue for purses.
Casinos and slot machines at horse and dog tracks were approved by the Senate early Thursday morning, ending a day of filibustering that gave supporters time to corral enough votes to send the bill to Gov. Kathleen Sebelius.
Legislation to authorize casino gambling at Kansas racetracks including The Woodlands, the state's only Thoroughbred track, has passed the House and has moved to the Senate.
