Satellite slot machines proposal appears to be off the table

Satellite slot machines proposal appears to be off the table”

House Speaker Joe Aresimowicz, D-Berlin, said the margin surprised him.

The two tribes already operate casinos on tribal land in southeastern CT.

The two tribes operate Connecticut's Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos, respectively.

CT lawmakers have given final legislative approval to a bill that authorizes the state's two federally recognized tribes to open a casino in East Windsor.

While Malloy has not advocated a third casino in CT, he has said he preferred the tribal proposal over another bill that would have opened up the process to other casino developers.

The Connecticut house and senate has now approved a casino bill, and now the bill will move along onto the governor's desk.

According to Aresimowicz, this new bill would allow Sportech Venues to have eight more off-track betting licenses, for a total of 24 possible locations throughout the state.

Germany, China pledge to boost ties amid Trump concerns
Other European leaders issued more explicit appeals to the USA government not to abandon global measures against climate change. A spokesman for President Vladimir Putin said Russian Federation "thinks highly" of the accords and sees no alternative to it.

Contending that that the company's goal has always been to have the chance to compete to do business in the state, MGM officials added that they will continue to legally challenge the measure, which cleared the Connecticut House early Wednesday and now heads to Gov. Dannel Malloy for consideration.

Proponents of the bill say it will add more jobs to the state while other say it tarnishes the reputation of CT.

The bill would allow CT to prepare for on-line sports better if federal restrictions are lifted by Congress, she said.

The issue this year was a bill that neutralized a health-and-safety liability issue that had discouraged mixed-martial arts promoters from staging matches in CT.

The bill that would authorize the construction process was passed by the House in a 103-46 vote. The state had required a greater level of health coverage for MMA than for boxing, as well as a gross-receipts tax that the bill repeals.

Slowing the deterioration of the revenue-sharing - and trying to offset the loss of thousands of jobs at Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun, once MGM opens, with new ones in East Windsor - is the heart of the tribes' argument for a new casino. Unions have backed the MMA restrictions because a non-union casino operator in Las Vegas is a financial backer of the martial arts events, the Mirror reported.

Earlier in the week, lawmakers discussed the possibility of allowing additional slot machines in OTB facilities in Bridgeport, New Haven and Waterbury, and a so-called boutique casino for high-rollers in Hartford. However, that idea fell apart Monday night.
