A bill that would have made it possible for the state's four racetracks, including Raynham Taunton Greyhound Park, to offer slot machines is dead for this year.If this is true, it'll seriously make my day.
David L. Flynn, D-Bridgewater, said the Senate has refused to allow action on the measure to legalize slots at the four race tracks.
Also, score one for Sue Tucker.
And in the House:
House Speaker Sal DiMasi gave little hope that the slots bill would advance before the July 31st deadline....Obviously, in Speaker DiMasi's House, it goes exactly where it should: no where.
“That’s actually in limbo,” DiMasi said.... “There’s a difference of opinion as to where it goes.”
(Take that, Joan.)
