N.H. Senator Pushing Revised Casino Bill
A state senator who has tried for years to persuade New Hampshire lawmakers to legalize a casino is going to try again despite a House vote to reject one last week.
Sen. Lou D'Allesandro plans to ask the Senate to amend his bill Thursday to add the regulatory scheme in the defeated House bill and send it to the House in hopes his proposal will have a different outcome.
D'Allesandro said he and Senate President Chuck Morse are working on an amendment to incorporate parts of the House bill into his proposal. He said unlike the House bill that legalized one casino, his bill will license two casinos with a sharing a total of 5,000 video slot machines.
Gov. Maggie Hassan only supports a single casino.
