Gambling Bill Tabled Once Again in N.H. Senate

Via oregonlive.com

A billthat would have legalized casino gambling in New Hampshire fell flat once again in the state Senate.

If signed into law, the bill would have legalized video lottery games at a single location in the state. Originally the measure named Rockingham Park in Salem as the location - but in an effort to gain more votes – a revised bill called for an open bidding process.

That didn’t seem to work. Lead sponsor Senator Lou D’Allesandro more or less killed the bill with a motion to table it for the second time this session.

This is the only casino bill still on the table this session. Another bill – which is in committee in the Senate – looks to legalize Keno.
