Missouri River Historical Development says it's ready for a new partner. The non-profit group that holds the license to Sioux City's Argosy Casino voted Monday night to search for a new operator to work with in applying for Woodbury County's gaming license. MRHD president Mark Monson says they could see interest from operators inside and outside the state of Iowa, including current Argosy owner Penn National. The Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission will decide who gets the gaming license next April.
