A proposal from the state treasurer, probably acting with some leeway by the governor. The Wampanoags will be able to open a casino, Connecticutt already collects $1 Billion a year from Mass residents.

The legislature has opposed casinos, for a variety of reasons (moral, fiscal,economic).

Mass State Lottery generates a bit less than $1B a year, and is considered a slow-growth revenue source now.

An earlier op-ed by Derrick Jackson was titled "No Jackpot with Casino Gambling".

No comments from here, except that it fits in with the idea of the governor exploring all revenue options.
