The Missouri Gaming Commission is looking for a new chairman.  Jim Mathewson announced he’s stepping down, one month after his three-year term officially expired. 

St. Louis, MO – The Missouri Gaming Commission says its decision to award a new casino license will hinge on the result of an economic impact study. St. Louis Public radio's Adam Allington reports that the commission held hearings on two applications in St. Louis today (Tues).

Two of the four casino applications before the commission are located in the St. Louis region, both within three miles of each other, but under different governing authorities.
