Senate clears casino plan
The Massachusetts Senate has approved a casino gambling bill that supporters argued would create jobs and generate new tax revenue but that critics predicted would bring grim social consequences that outweigh any economic benefits.

I no longer have to lose my money and donate it to Connecticut. Now Massachusetts can get my gambling losses!!!!! Can't wait to save on gas as well with a shorter drive, if it will in fact be in Palmer as I am hearing. If I'm going to lose (as most casino goers do), it might as well go back to my state.

you can lose it by playing the Mass lottery without using up all that valuable gas too. actually you have a better chance of winning something in a casino than you do the smoke and mirror state lottery...they have tightened it up so much the only ones getting rich on it are the ones printing the tickets

The income for the state will be used for the following I read:
rainy day fund
gambling addiction resources
Except for the last one these are always the same uses for all the incomes when something like this comes into play. The people will not receive any benefits at all. In New Brunswick Canada they are trying to put in fracking, they used the same exact words for their income if it is let in.
All states have 2 sets of accounts, one that is public and income derived yearly from resident. The other is hidden and is full of investments, ownerships of lands, you name it. Each state is a branch of the USA Corp (DC)
