Racinos Just Around the Corner
Hopefully people haven't been lax on casinos, because the fight is not over. According to my sources, Speaker DiMasi promised House members that he'll allow a vote on Racinos this session. Knowing that, it means there will be some kind of vote - and probably hearing - on a Racino bill by the end of July, at the latest. As one of my anti-casino colleagues eloquently says, "We have to beat casinos every time. They only need to win once." Expect the next battle to happen soon - and plan accordingly. If you haven't talked to your state reps in the past month, please do so.
