A bill authorizing a casino with 500 slot machines and 150 table games faces its first vote in the senate ways and means committee Tuesday morning.
The proposal enjoys the backing of Governor Maggie Hassan and calls for the casino to be located on the Massachusetts border.
But as NHPR’s Chris Jensen reports, it’s also getting some attention in the North Country.
As drafted, Senate Bill 152, envisions a sending part of of the casino’s profits to the North Country for economic development.
Sen. Jeff Woodburn is a Democrat from Dalton.
