Missouri’s K-12 schools could face even tougher funding hurdles this year thanks to the slumping gaming industry.
A document provided to the Associated Press today shows Missouri’s 12 casinos were projected to generate about $372 million. That was based on the assumption that removing loss limits would generate more revenue.
The Missouri Department of Transportation is asking Missourians to take an online survey about the state rail plan. Through the survey, MoDOT is seeking information about rail services, challenges, opportunities, costs and benefits from the public's point of view.
"It's always a challenge to pay for all the transportation services and improvements Missourians tell us they want, so how the state invests our rail transportation dollars says a lot about our priorities and has a major impact on the state's economy. " - MoDot Director Kevin Keith.
