The Joint Committee on Gaming and Wagering is making some recommendations to change some of Missouri’s gaming rules. But for the most part, it wants to keep gambling in the state the way it currently is. One change endorsed by the State Gaming Commission is granting arrest powers to certain individuals in certain cases. Despite the objections of the panel’s chair, Representative Bob Johnson of Lee’s Summit, the rest of the committee votes in favor of granting the limited arrest powers in emergency situations. They also vote to keep the $500 loss limit for individuals at casinos – a move Gaming Commission members acknowledge could be costing the state money.
