A letter was sent on Wednesday to House Speaker Brendan Sharkey by Attorney General George Jepsen over the interest of two tribes wanting to build casinos. Jespen believes that the proposed casino plan would not affect the current agreements with Foxwoods Resorts and Mohegan Sun Casinos.

In the letter, Jespen questioned potential legal issues that the legislation would create from the previous proposed bill. In order to prevent competition from neighboring states, both the Mashantucket Pequot and the Mohegan tribes would work together to open three satellite casinos.

The most recent bill would allow for the opening of one casino, however it would have to be done in a two-step process of approval. The bill is currently in the House waiting for a vote.

Jespen believes that the wording in the new bill would not impact other tribes that are working on obtaining recognition. As well as the percentage of slot revenues that would be paid to the state.
