Missouri's Gaming Commission Director wants tougher punishment for under age riverboat casino gamblers. Tracy Sadeghian has the story from Jefferson City.
It's against Missouri law to gamble at riverboat casinos if you're under the age of twenty-one.
But a bill before the Senate House Ways and Means Committee Wednesday would add teeth to existing law.. by charging all violators with a fine or a jail sentence.
Missouri Gaming Commission Director..Kevin Mullally says current law does not go far enough...
There was no opposition to the measure.
From Jefferson City, I'm Tracy Sadeghian.
