Brockton Casino Investor Urges MassGaming for Quick Decision on Proposal
Neil Bluhm, one of many individuals behind the project that is ambitious a casino resort in Brockton, urged the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to take quick action on the proposal. Otherwise, the investor threatened he would withdraw their support for the construction of the gambling location.
Mr. Bluhm is Chairman of gambling developer and operator Rush Street Gaming, parent company of this newly created Mass Gaming and Entertainment, which will be in control of the $650-million casino project.
The investor indicated issues that the state gambling regulator could be purposefully delaying its choice on whether it would grant Mass Gaming and Entertainment the Southeastern Massachusetts casino that is sole license. Mr. Bluhm suggested that commissioners could possibly prefer to wait for the resolution that is pending the legal status of the casino proposition from the state's federally recognized Mashpee Wampanoag Indian Tribe.
The tribe has applied to take into trust 150 acres of land in Taunton. If given the land, it might be able to commence work with its proposed policy for a gambling place. Nonetheless, Mr. Bluhm argued that when the Bureau of Indian Affairs rules in support of the tribe, your decision will definitely be appealed. This, in turn, may launch a years-long appropriate battle and the investor suggested that he could not wait that long.
The Brockton casino plan is the bidder that is only the Southeastern Massachusetts casino license.
