Statement from Senator Cathy Osten Re: Today's Interior Department Decision on Mohegan Tribe and East Windsor Casino

State Senator Cathy Osten (D-Sprague) issued the following statement this afternoon following news reports that the U.S. Department of the Interior will officially publish notice on Friday that an amended gaming agreement between the Mohegan Tribe and the State of Connecticut is taking effect, thereby clearing the way for development of an East Windsor casino.

"I never thought this outcome was in question, but I'm glad it's finally happened," Sen. Osten said. "This decision puts us just where we want to be: continuing to protect jobs in Connecticut and revenue for the state."
