Casinos are SO hot right now. There’s obviously Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun in the eastern part of the state. The tribes want to add a casino up in East Windsor, to combat the one that’s currently up in Springfield!
Now, state lawmakers are considering adding one down in Fairfield County. There was debate last year, if you remember, that a casino worth $500 million would be added to the Bridgeport waterfront.
This one would be anywhere from Greenwich up to Bridgeport, but some state officials are pushing back.
“We have heard from MGM that they can do better by building a casino in Fairfield County,” says state Sen. Bob Duff. “There is a fundamental problem with that proposal. Fairfield County does not want a casino.”
