A Question for the Speaker, Re: Casinos and Suffolk Downs

The three licensed casinos in your proposal would require any bidder to agree to spend at least $500 million dollars on the facility to win the bid, which is the exact same amount that Suffolk Downs said it would like to invest in its proposed facility.

If Suffolk's proposed plan was to invest $400 or $450 million, instead of $500 million, would we the bill have a different minimum agreement for investment in the bid?

For $500 million, you get a Slot Barn, not some elegant facility.

There are no penalties for not doing so and there is no specified time period.

What has been done elsewhere, is the Slot Barn gets built to suck discretionary income from the surrounding community and the pretense of future construction is employed.

Sleight of hand!
