House Committee Opposes Senate-Passed Bill for N.H. Casinos
A House Committee has voted overwhelmingly to reject a Senate-backed plan to allow casino gambling in New Hampshire.
The House has always opposed what gambling backers like to call expanded gaming, and Tuesday's 17-2 vote by the Ways and Means Committee indicates that's not likely to change this year.
The bill, which would allow full-fledged casinos in New Hampshire, passed the state Senate by a 13-11 vote in March.
The proposal was projected to bring the state $60 million in licensing fees and more than $100 million in taxes a year.
