The State Gambling Commission has opened the door ever so slightly to commercial casino development in Southeastern Massachusetts.  The Commission on Tuesday, suggested it may accept applications from commercial developers, while allowing the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe to continue its pursuit of a casino in Taunton.  However, if the tribe made significant progress, the commission would likely drop the commercial bids, and allow the tribe to go ahead.  According to the Boston Globe, the Comission designated Commissioner James McHugh to draw up a proposal, allowing the panel to accept applications from commercial operators, while allowing the tribe to continue pursuing federal approval for a casino.  Commissoners will likely discuss the proposal again next week, but no vote is expected for several weeks.
