Osten Statement on Malloy Signing Bill into Law to Protect Connecticut Gaming Industry

Gov. Malloy signs bill authorizing entertainment and casino gaming facility in East Windsor

State Senator Cathy Osten (D-Sprague) released the following statement after Governor Dannel P. Malloy today put his signature on a bill authorizing the state’s two tribal nations to construct a satellite entertainment and gaming facility in East Windsor:

“Today’s signing of the casino gaming bill is a huge victory for protecting thousands of gaming and other jobs in eastern Connecticut. This was a bipartisan effort to protect against MGM Springfield’s efforts to decimate one of our most important industries and destroy jobs in our state. We are standing up for our tribal partners and the thousands of people who are employed by Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun, and today’s bill signing is a clear message that we will not sit back and allow other states to destroy our tourism economy.”
