State Senator Dennis Bradley Voices Support for Agreement that Would Include Both Native American Tribes to Partner with Connecticut

Today, state Senator Dennis Bradley (D-Bridgeport) voiced his support for an agreement that would honor both the Mohegan Tribe and the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe to reach a deal with Connecticut that would allow sports betting and online gaming. In support of the Eastern Connecticut legislative delegation, Senator Bradley wrote a letter to Governor Lamont this morning requesting an agreement be made by March 7 that includes the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation.

Senator Bradley is a strong supporter for the expansion of sports wagering and gaming in Connecticut and with an agreement with both Native American Tribes, the committed partnership would benefit a casino in Bridgeport.

This legislative session, Senator Bradley has introduced a bill that would authorize a tribal-resort casino in Bridgeport that would allow sports wagering, internet gaming, and internet lottery.
