Is there Room for More Casinos in Maine? [POLL]
There are currently two running casinos in the state of Maine, but a study commissioned by the Legislature suggests that the state could actually sustain more casinos, depending on their size and location. What do you think?
The study was released on August 30th, and shows that the state’s economy could handle one more casino as long as it is in southern Maine, close to Interstate 95 and popular summer tourist attractions.
The study also suggests a smaller casino in northern Maine, in either Washington or here in Aroostook County. What do you think?
Members of the Legislature’s Veterans and Legal Affairs Committee are expected to review the study later this month.
Republican State Senator Garrett Mason of Lisbon says that the $110,000 study gives lawmakers a clean slate for developing workable policy proposals that aren’t based on a particular set of constituents’ desires.
