Do you pay attention to what your state legislature is doing? Rarely does anyone pay attention to what is going on in their state. Do you know they pass rates to raise our heat bills in summer and raise rates for our electric bills in winter? People usually don't even notice it happening.
Where is the news media when this is going on? Oh, they tell you about it once or twice, but that isn't nearly enough to reach everyone. Then again who cares about the heat bill when it's 90 degrees out? Why do you think the utilities companies try to pass rate hikes in the opposite season you're affected by them? It's because they don't want you to notice.
There was a bill Ameristar and other casinos were trying to get passed in
credit to gamblers while they are at the casino, so they won't have to stop
playing when they run out of money.
Fortunately, this bill was voted down this time. We really need to watch for another bill to
be presented because this wasn't the first time the casinos in Missouri
tried to pass a similar bill. They will
definitely try again. Missouri
Have a nice weekend, and I'll see you again soon.
