Meeting of State Gaming Commission to discuss East Taunton casino proposal

... 09 July 2012

Taunton – A meeting of the State Gaming Commission will be held on Thursday, the 12th July at the Lakeville Council where Southern Massachusetts town would present their views for the proposed East Taunton Casino. State Rep. Keiko Orrall, R-Lakeville has requested for the meeting as sections of Lakeville, Taunton and Middleboro fall under his district. Views from the surrounding communities will be put forward in connection with the proposed casino, but there may not be much response. Stephen Crosby, the Gaming Commission Chairman said on Monday’s weekly commission meeting that they may not be in a position to give much as far as specifics are concerned. Orrall expressed that it would just be a listening process for the Gaming Commission. In fact it would facilitate to conceive various concerns of the surrounding communities. The jurisdiction of the State Gaming Commission in the whole process is limited because the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe is on the move to seek a tribal gaming license as per the Indian Gaming Regulatory Act. Negotiations by the tribe with Gov. Deval Patric are in the pipeline. Though no specifics have been discussed by the State and tribal officials, yet they know the communities’ various issues and also intend to solve the same. One casino in each of three regions of Massachusetts would be authorized as per the law. In case no accord is reached between the state and the tribe, bids from the commercial concerns would be invited for issuing license for southeastern Massachusetts casino. Orrall said the whole process is a way to apprise the people about all the activities and Gaming Commission’s role. She emphasized the need for an effective discussion and they must understand that the Gaming Commission is serious about the surrounding communities and intends to work with them for a better understanding.
