Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont Statement on MGM Lawsuit

HARTFORD, CT (STL.News) – Connecticut Governor Ned Lamont released the following statement on the lawsuit filed today by MGM regarding the future of gaming in Connecticut:

“As I have consistently said, our state needs to reach a global gaming resolution that will avoid years and years of complex litigation.  The gaming industry in Connecticut represents a significant portion of our economy, and as other states have demonstrated, there is room to grow it.  It has always been my intention to develop a comprehensive gaming platform that not only strengthened Connecticut’s gaming industry, but protected it from litigation.  Our administration remains committed to these objectives and looks forward to working toward a solution that moves the state forward with the General Assembly.”
