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 revenue.

Connecticut receives 25 percent of slot machine revenue. 18,000 people work for both Foxwoods Resorts Casino and the Mohegan Sun 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.
