Senator Larson Statement Regarding Casinos

“We heard testimony today in the Public Safety Committee on House Bill 5305, which would repeal legislation and stop the progress made by our two tribal casinos in their effort to save jobs. I’ve been around for a while and this continues to remind me of when Robert Kraft promised to bring the New England Patriots to Hartford in the late 1990’s. I’m disappointed that we continue to offend our tribal partners in this process. I have deep concerns about the MGM casino proposal and I will not support legislation that puts Connecticut jobs at risk.”
