Brockton Casino Investor Urges MassGaming for Fast Decision on Proposal
Neil Bluhm, among the people behind the project that is ambitious a casino resort in Brockton, urged the Massachusetts Gaming Commission to just take quick action on the proposition. Otherwise, the investor threatened which he would withdraw their support for the construction of the gambling place.
Mr. Bluhm is Chairman of gambling operator and developer Rush Street Gaming, parent business for the newly formed Mass Gaming and Entertainment, which will be in control of the $650-million casino task.
The investor indicated concerns that their state gambling regulator are purposefully delaying its decision on whether it could grant Mass Gaming and Entertainment the Southeastern Massachusetts casino that is sole permit. Mr. Bluhm proposed that commissioners would probably prefer to wait for the resolution that is pending the appropriate status of a casino proposition from the state's federally recognized Mashpee Wampanoag Indian Tribe.
The tribe has applied to just take into trust 150 acres of land in Taunton. If provided the land, it will be in a position to commence work on its proposed plan for a gambling venue. However, Mr. Bluhm argued that when the Bureau of Indian Affairs guidelines and only the tribe, your decision will definitely be appealed. This, in turn, may introduce a years-long appropriate battle and the investor indicated that he could not wait that long.
The Brockton casino plan could be the only bidder for the Southeastern Massachusetts casino permit.
