Dorft bet on it There's still a chance the bill could come back, but it's not likely By KATRINA HULL The Associated Press TOPEKA — Supporters gambled that a $206 miUion hole in the state budget had improved the odds for House approval of slot machines, but they came up short. The House voted 73-49 Friday against a proposal that would have permitted slot machines at dog and horse racing tracks. It was offered as an amendment to a bill correcting technical flaws in the state budget. Supporters had hoped that $60 million — the estimated revenue to the state from slot machines — would entice some House members who normally oppose gambling. "We have citizens in the state of Kansas who gamble. We don't want them to gamble, but it's happening," said Rep. David Huff, R-Lenexa, the amendment's sponsor. "Why do we have a blinder on? We don't have to raise taxes. We have an opportunity to bring $60 miUion into our state." But Rep. Bob BetheU, R- Alden, urged members to vote against the proposal. "It's a voluntary tax on those with hope in their hearts that they'll get rich fast," Bethell said. "This is hope built on something that will not only take their hope, but take their opportunity to succeed in life." Huff said he believed the debate over slots is over for the session. Rep. Ted Powers, R-Mulvane, sang, "Good-bye slots," when the tally appeared on the House's electronic vote board. House Speaker Kent Glasscock, R-Manhattan, wouldn't declare the issue dead, saying many proposals come back repeatedly But he added, "Forty-nine votes, that doesn't seem to be a very strong endorsement." The Senate voted 23-17 earlier this year to reject a slot machines measure, But Friday's proposal was different. It included the Eureka Downs horse track in Eureka, and Anthony Downs, which has both dog and horse racing, in Anthony Both run limited racing seasons. Like the plan the Senate rejected, the House proposal provided for slot machines at Camptown Greyhound Park, outside Pittsburg; Wichita Greyhound Park; and The Woodlands, which has separate dog and horse tracks in Kansas City, Kan. Huff said the machines would raise as much as $240 million a year — of which 25 percent, or $60 miUion, would go to the state. Huff's proposal did not designate how the state would use the money But Rep. Joe McLeland, R- Wichita, said the estimate didn't calculate what the state would have to pay to prevent crime related to casinos or lost wages for people addicted to gambling. However, Rep. Tom Burroughs, D-Kansas City, said Kansans already gambled at Indian casinos in the northeastern part of the state and at floating casinos in Kansas City, Mo. If slot machines were legalized. Burroughs said, the only difference would be that Kansas could keep the profits. "There's plenty of sin to go around," he said. Methodist Church, Hartford, the Rev Gary Harms officiating.

Americein farmers looking at soy fuel Making diesel fuel from soybeans would revive sagging market By PHILIP BRASHER The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Farmers are turning to an old idea — making diesel fuel from crops instead of petroleum — to rev up their income. Biodiesel goes back to Rudolf Diesel's first engine in 1895, which burned peanut oU. Now, farmers think biodiesel could prop up coUapsed soybean prices, and they are pushing Congress and states this year to require or subsidize use of biodiesel as a fuel additive. "We think the time is right for the product," said Ron Heck, who farms near Perry Iowa, but the Industry "nedds a kick- start." Truckers and railroads do not want the fuel to be required, while environmentalists fear the push to use biodiesel wUl slow the switch to cleaner energy sources such as natural gas. Biodiesel, which can be made from restaurant grease as weU as vegetable oil, costs three times as much as regular diesel, so it is only used, as an additive. Even then, adding biodiesel in small amounts raises the cost of fuel by several cents a gaUon, depending on the blend. Legislation expected to be introduced soon in Congress wovdd provide biodiesel with a break from federal fuel taxes simUar to that already provided to ethanol, a gasoline additive made from corn. Biodiesel production eventu- aUy could reach 2 biUion gallons a year — about 8 percent of the nation's current highway diesel consumption. — if it is subsidized to the extent that ethanol is, according to the American Biofuels Association. Meanwhile, a bill that has passed a series of committees in the Minnesota Legislature would require all diesel sold in the state to contain at least 2 percent biodiesel. The Minnesota legislation "has the potential to serve as a model for a national program or simUar programs in other states. The industry is very hopeful," said Jenna Higgins, a spokeswoman for the National Biodiesel Board, The trucking and railroad industries say the proposal would drive up their costs and contend it has not been proved that biodiesel can work in all engines and weather conditions. Airlines have joined the fight out of concern a biodiesel rule would indirectly increase the price of aviation fuel. "It would be like the truckers going to the legislature and saying we've got excess capacity, why don't we mandate that everything be hauled on trucks?" said John Hausladen, who represents Minnesota's trucking industry ON THE RECORD Animal shelter , These animals were picked up April 27 at the locations listed and taken to the Salina Animal Shelter, 329 N.
