JOHNSTON, Iowa — The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission will discuss the future of gaming licenses Thursday.

It comes following the narrow approval of a Greene County casino in June and the denial of a license to developers in Cedar Rapids in April.

A recent study showed the gaming market in the state is saturated.

During Thursday’s meeting in Johnston, the board could decide it won’t issue any new licenses for a certain number of years.
