EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. (AP) - A Pennsylvania-based real estate investment trust is buying the Casino Queen's real-estate assets in East St. Louis for $140 million.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the properties being bought by Gaming and Leisure Properties Inc. include the 38,000-square-foot casino, 157-room hotel and the park for recreational vehicles.
Based in Wyomissing, Pa., Gaming and Leisure Properties was spun off last month by Penn National Gaming Inc.
The employee-owned Casino Queen will lease the property back from the Gaming and Leisure Properties for about $14 million a year.
The Illinois Gaming Board must approve of the sale, which is expected to be finalized early next year.
FULTON, Mo. (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon says the budget he proposes next month will include a bond issuance to rebuild the Fulton State Hospital.
The hospital admitted its first patients in 1851. Patients now include those committed by the courts for evaluation and treatment. It also is the statewide treatment facility for people who have been found not guilty or unable to stand trial because of mental disease.
Nixon said Monday a new facility will mean better care for patients and safer working conditions for employees. Officials estimate a new facility will cost $211 million.
Missouri's budget taking effect in July includes $13 million to design the new hospital. Nixon initially froze all the money but released $2 million in September. He announced Monday he was releasing the remaining $11 million.
