Commissioners of the Wyandotte County and Kansas City Unified Government are considering this week whether to endorse two casino plans that are smaller and less expensive than earlier proposals that were withdrawn by their sponsors.

Both proposals to operate a state-owned casino would provide the Kansas county with about $14 million a year in property tax, sales tax, and gaming revenues, with the state expecting to receive $44.3 million a year. The earlier plans would have generated about $31 million a year for the combined city-county government.
