Reaction Rolling In To SJC Decision

TSM

Reaction is pouring in after the state’s highest court ruled that a question seeking to repeal the Massachusetts casino gambling law could appear on the November state ballot.

Repeal advocates gathered in front of the State House Tuesday afternoon. The campaign’s chairman, John Ribeiro, said advocates have fought the casino issue “town by town” and are now ready to take their campaign statewide.

Attorney General Martha Coakley said earlier she accepted the unanimous decision by the Supreme Judicial Court that overturned her finding.

Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno said in a statement that MGM Resorts International’s recently licensed proposal to build an $800 million resort casino there is a “massive jobs generation project” his city needs.

MGM Springfield’s president Michael Mathis said it’s prepared “to educate the voters on the enormous economic benefits that would be lost” by repeal.
