Rep. Hall Comments on Bill to Give Exclusive Gaming Rights to Tribes

Posted on May 21, 2021


During Thursday night’s legislative session, Rep. Hall spoke out in opposition to HB-6451, An Act Concerning Gaming Agreements With the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe and the Mohegan Tribe of Indians of Connecticut.

“I could not support this bill because it completely bypasses a previous agreement made between the two tribes, Town of East Windsor and State of Connecticut. This proposal not only hurts the town and surrounding communities due to a lack of tax revenue they would have received, but also places a moratorium on the development of the East Windsor casino for the initial 10 years of the agreement while giving the tribes exclusive rights to operate sports wagering and online casino gaming,” Rep. Hall said.
