Massachusetts Gambling News Brief


House OKs 2 casinos, limited slots


Worcester Telegram & Gazette,  Sunday, April 18, 2010 at 11:09:00 AM

Despite warnings from opponents that it would destroy families, increase crime and harm the economy, the House last night gave overwhelming approval to an expansion of gambling, with a veto-proof 120-37 margin of support for two resort casinos and slots at the state's four racetracks.

The approval, which saw dozens of lawmakers changing their position on gambling from two years ago when the House rejected a three-casino plan by a 108-46 vote, came after two days of debate and 13 days after the bill was unveiled by House Speaker Robert E. DeLeo.

This time around, legislators desperate to bring in new jobs to deal with an unemployment rate above 9 percent sided with proponents who cited studies showing the bill would create up to 15,000 jobs and deliver more than $300 million in new annual revenues to the cash-starved state government.
