Casinos Spend $14M to Protect MA Law Allowing Casinos

Construction Equipment Guide (AP): “Casino companies, which poured roughly $14 million into their successful effort to defeat the ballot question proposing to repeal the state’s 2011 casino law, defended their spending. They pointed to their promises to invest more than $2.6 billion and create 10,000 new casino-related jobs and 6,500 temporary construction jobs in Massachusetts.

“‘Three of the most successful and respected gaming companies internationally are poised to invest over $2.6 billion in Massachusetts,’ said Justine Griffin, spokeswoman of the pro-casino Coalition to Protect Massachusetts Jobs, which was financed by Wynn, MGM and Penn National Gaming, the state’s three licensed gambling operators.”
