The Status of Casinos in Iowa
In 2007 the state of Iowa allowed casinos to move from riverboats to land. Since that time several communities around the state have sought a piece of the casino action. But how many casinos are too many for Iowa?
"River to River" looks at current casino proposals in Warren and Linn Counties. We'll also examine why communities like Davenport and Sioux City are in the process of moving their casinos from riverboats to land.
Joining the conversation, Chairman of the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission Jeff Lamberti, Susan Geddes from Warren County Citizens for Good Jobs, columnist Todd Dorman of the Cedar Rapids Gazette, Business Editor for the Sioux City Journal Dave Dreeszen, and Kurt Allemeier, reporter for the Quad-City Times.
