Mass Senate Ready to Pass Casino Bill

Even more news on the casino front here in Massachusetts - and it looks like the bill this time does not guarantee an Indian tribe get one of the casinos.

Massachusetts lawmakers are estimating three proposed casinos would generate up to $1.8 billion in gambling revenues each year and add 12,000 jobs to economy.

Massachusetts would receive a quarter of those revenues -- up to $450 million a year -- under a bill released by the state Senate Friday. In a major change from an earlier version, one of the three casinos would no longer be guaranteed for an Indian tribe.
