Expanded Gambling: Will New Bill Change Minds?
After many failed attempts to pass a casino bill, supporters think they may finally have a winning hand -- proposing two casinos and a new revenue-sharing plan. Opponents are raising long-held concerns about gambling’s social costs, including addiction and crime. We’ll look at this new bill and its odds for passing.
- Lou D’Allesandro – Democratic Senator from Manchester. He is a longtime proponent of expanded gambling in the state, and sponsor of the two-casino bill currently under debate.
- Patricia Lovejoy – Democratic Representative from Stratham. She opposes D’Allesandro’s gambling bill.
- Steve Norton – executive director of New Hampshire Public Policy Studies, which put out a study last year looking at expanded gambling in the state.
