On Monday, the Maine State House announced that there will be a report made to discuss the gaming future for the state. The report will include possible locations for casinos. It will also include gaming possibilities for Native American tribes. The report will be used to start a debate on possible gambling expansion in Maine.

There has been discussion on the possible development of two casinos. One would be a tribal owned casino. The other would be located in the southern section of the state.

However, Democrats believe that receiving approval for the two new casinos will be a difficult challenge.

Members that will form the new gaming committee have not been chosen yet.

Supporters for expanded gaming want to be positive that interested developers will deliver on their promises.

The Penobscot Indian Nation have been effected by the competition from Bangor's Hollywood Casino. The tribe operates high stakes Beano games. Any proposed measure that does not help the tribe will be fought by Wayne Mitchell. The Penobscot Tribal Representative.

Mitchell retires from Legislature in two years. He plans on doing as much as he can before that time to help the tribe.

A bill is also being planned to be requested by the end of this month. The bill would allow for up to three more gaming venues to be built. State Sen. Linda Valentino is in favor of the measure. Her bill would allow for two smaller casino developments in Washington and Aroostook counties. In addition to the larger casino in southern Maine.

If the bill is approved, voters in the proposed casino areas would have final say on whether or not the additional casinos would be allowed.
