The Missouri Gaming Commission is recommending that disciplinary action be taken against Mark Twain Casino in LaGrange.

At its monthly meeting Wednesday, the commission unanimously approved a preliminary order of disciplinary action, recommending that the casino be fined $5,000.

Documents show that the casino is being penalized for failing to correct three significant findings found in a compliance audit from 2015 to 2017.

The commission had been told that the findings had been corrected. But, a follow up audit last year showed the failures had not been corrected.

Officials with Mark Twain Casino have 30 days to appeal the recommendation or the action becomes final.
