What Happens In Taunton, Stays In Taunton

A May 15 public hearing has been set for "Gov. Deval Patrick's proposed gaming compact with the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe, which languished in committee during April while state regulators opened the southeast region up to commercial bidders..." The original compact, rejected by the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs, gave state 21.5 percent of gaming proceeds. Under the latest proposal, Massachusetts would get between 15-17 percent of gaming revenues. [State House News Services via CapeCodToday.com]
