Bleak budget could boost video lottery idea By KATRINA HULL The Associated Press TOPEKA — The state's budget crunch has some lobbyists hoping state-operated video lottery machines are a revenue source whose time has come — even if the devices do resemble slot machines. No legislation has been introduced yet to let the Kansas Lottery operate video terminals offering blackjack or poker at locations where lottery tickets are sold. But that could change when the House and Senate reconvene next week to wrap up the year's business, including passage of a final budget bill. Thomas Palace, a lobbyist for the Convenience Store Association of Kansas, estimates the machines could raise $100 mil­ lion a year for the state. Senate Majority Leader Lana Oleen said video lottery machines may not sound bad given the $206 million gap between expected revenues and spending already approved for the next fiscal year. She predicted the video lottery issue will surface in the session's final days. But even the bleak revenue picture won't sway some legislators — including Oleen — who are opposed to allowing slot machines in the state. Earlier this year, the Senate rejected a measure that would have permitted slot machines at horse and dog-racing tracks with local approval. "I consider them slot machines, and I intend to oppose them," said Oleen, R-Manhattan. Martha E. Knipe OAKLEY — Martha E.
