Mayor Slay Has Words for Missouri Gaming Commission: Don't You Dare Sink This Ship
|If the President capsizes, its gaming license could be given to a casino operating beyond city limits (and coffers).|
The owners of the President [Pinnacle Entertainment] have put forward ideas to improve the property and generate more revenues for the state. For example, they proposed a newer, better-equipped facility. Every proposal has been rebuffed by Staff. After throwing up obstacles to improvement, Staff now says it will attempt to pull the license because the President hasn't improved. It would be like your local government rejecting a permit to repair your house, then condemning your house because you didn't repair it.
