update: casino license moratrium passes senate committee

Senate Bill 1171, sponsored by Sen. Jack Goodman, which would impose a two-year moratorium on new casino licenses passed its first legislative test today.

The moratorium was voted “due pass” by the Senate Pensions, Veterans’ Affairs and General Laws Committee on a 5-1 vote. The next step for this bill is to be reported out of committee and placed on the calendar for debate and vote on the Senate floor.
