The Connecticut tribes that operate casinos are worried about the future
competition from a future Massachusetts casino. The economic impact could
dramatically affect the tribes. The new $800 million Springfield casino is
scheduled to open in 2017.
On Tuesday a meeting was held by the public safety committee. Representatives
from both the Mohegan Tribe and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation were
present. Lawmakers were made aware of the concerns by both tribes over the
potential of job loss. As well as the state loosing tax money from lower casino

The tribes would like to build three additional casinos to stay competitive.
It is unclear if Governor Dannel Malloy would be in support of new casinos.
