Massachusetts Senate wants smoking ban at casinos
While support appears to be building for passage of the Senate bill, it differs from the House version in the scope and type of gaming allowed. The Senate would allow three standalone full-fledged casinos and no slots at existing racetracks. The House version includes two standalone casinos and 750 slots at each of the state’s four racetracks. Both the House and Senate bills do agree on a 25 percent tax rate on gross gaming revenue.
