Mohegan Tribe reaffirms commitment to casino in Massachusetts
Wednesday, February 9, 2011
The Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut is still committed to a casino in Massachusetts, a top gaming executive said.
The tribe wants to build the Mohegan Sun Palmer in the western part of the state. The facility would be located about 60 miles from the reservation in Connecticut.
“Our goal is to be there,” Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority CEO Mitchell G. Etes told The Waterbury Republican. “When Massachusetts is ready, we’ll be ready.”
Lawmakers are gearing up for another debate on gaming. Past proposals have called for facilities in different parts of the state.
