JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Three developers, one in St. Louis, one in Cape Girardeau, and one in Sugar Creek near Kansas City, will each make presentations before the commission. Commission spokesperson Leann McCarthy says it's the last major step before a decision is made on which company gets the license.

"The commission is going to have to digest all the information they get," McCarthy said, "They're going to have to go through, weigh the proposals, take into consideration the economic analysis from the Missouri Department of Economic Development."

Meanwhile, North County Development LLC will not be taking part in today's meeting. The company has asked for more time to prepare their presentation.
