 LAS VEGAS, Sept. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Station Casinos Inc.

Sept. 20 was the first day set by the Commission for applicants to file for gaming licenses in Missouri.
 "This is another significant step toward the beginning of riverboat gaming operations in St. Charles and Missouri," said Frank Fertitta III, chairman and chief executive officer of Station Casinos. "This is the most thorough and extensive gaming license application that our company has ever filed. We sincerely appreciate the support and interest the St. Charles community has provided throughout this process."
 In its license application, St. Charles Riverfront Station is proposing an operation which includes both cruising riverboat gaming excursions and continuously docked gaming.

 "St. Charles Riverfront Station is ready to begin operations as soon as the licensing process has been completed and a license has been granted by the Missouri Gaming Commission," Fertitta said. The company has completed its purchase of a 52-acre site, has obtained the necessary U.S. Army Corps of Engineers permits for the site, and has the official support of the host city, St. Charles. Construction has already begun on the site.
 The company said the next major step toward beginning operations in St. Charles is to initiate the employment process of screening, testing and training more than 900 employees from the St. Charles area.
