Economic group urges 'yes' on Springfield casino

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - The Economic Development Council of Western Massachusetts is urging Springfield voters to approve the July 16 referendum on the MGM Springfield casino proposal.

The council says it believes the agreement between MGM Springfield and the city could provide an economic boost to the region.

The Republican reports that Allan W. Blair, president and CEO of the Economic Development Council, says the casino proposal and host community agreement need a thorough vetting by the state Gaming Commission.

Hard Rock International has proposed a casino for the Eastern States Exposition Grounds in West Springfield and the Mohegan Tribal Gaming Authority is proposing to build a casino in Palmer.
