Linn Co. Casino Request Under Review

OSCEOLA, Iowa (AP) -- The board that regulates gambling in Iowa is discussing a proposal to build a $100 million casino in Cedar Rapids. The five-member Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission must decide if it is ready to authorize another casino, adding to the 18 already licensed by the state to operate. The state also has three Native American casinos not regulated by the board.
   The Cedar Rapids proposal is on the agenda for the commission's meeting Thursday at Lakeside Hotel Casino in Osceola
   Linn County voters approved a gambling referendum in March.
   The board also is discussing a Davenport group's plan to buy the Rhythm City casino located near the Mississippi River. The group proposes moving the gambling operation to a new $110 million casino-hotel complex that would be built near Interstate 80.
