Casino bill passes test

The House of Representatives has voted favorably to send out of the commerce committee a casino gambling bill put together by House Speaker Robert DeLeo.

It is a solid bill which, if enacted and all its particulars successfully implemented, will put back to work many, many unemployed trades people living in this city as well as generating more tax dollars for the state to return to the cities and towns.

Now the bill moves on to the senate, where it will likely be refined but passed in the end, when everything is said and done.

Casino gambling and the possibility of slot machines for the state’s remaining four tracks are a good idea, financed entirely by private capital.

This is the way to go.
