Santiago Supports Gaming Bill

January 23, 2017

Legislation passed two years ago clearly isn’t working for Connecticut.  It is time to require a fully transparent process run by the state, where potential casino developers present comprehensive proposals that spell out the hiring process and how area towns will benefit. We need to see competing proposals that outline precisely the dollars that would be paid not only to the state, but to the host community and adjacent municipalities – and where we can get the biggest bang for our buck. We can only decide what’s best for our communities and our residents if we outline specific requirements, and evaluate competitive development proposals.  That’s the best way to decide if a commercial casino is the right move for Connecticut – who should build it, and where in the state it should be.
