PENN GAMING IS APPARENTLY ALREADY TALKING WITH ANOTHER NON PROFIT GROUP THAT COULD POTENTIALLY REPLACE MRHD AS THE LICENSE HOLDER FOR A LAND BASED CASINO IN WOODBURY COUNTY.

PENN HAS ASKED THE IOWA RACING AND GAMING COMMISSION
TO LET IT ESTABLISH AN OPERATING AGREEMENT WITH A NEW GROUP, BECAUSE MRHD IS SUING PENN IN THEIR DISPUTE OVER A  NEW OPERATING AGREEMENT.

KAREN BAILEY OF PENN SAYS HER COMPANY WILL LIKELY SUBMIT AN APPLICATION TO OPERATE THE NEW LAND BASED CASINO:
