Topeka, Kansas -- The decisions on who will run the four state-owned and operated casinos likely will be made in August and September by the Kansas Lottery Gaming Facility Review Board.
The board decided its timetable Thursday and agreed to ask Gov. Kathleen Sebelius for a 60-day extension on its current deadline. That would allow the board to decide on Aug. 21-22 for Cherokee and Sumner counties and Sept. 18-19 for Ford and Wyandotte counties.
