Senate OKs casino, House outcome uncertain

House fight looms


D’Allesandro has said a casino could be approved as soon as next year.

Millennium co-CEO Bill Wortman, speaking at a forum in Salem last month, said a $450 million, redeveloped Rockingham Park would open no later than 2016, if approved by the state.

Salem’s newly formed Casino Advisory Committee gathered for its first meeting last night. The nine-member panel, which includes Morse, was created to help the town plan for a casino possibly coming to Rockingham Park.

The group will determine how revenue from a casino would be used by the town and present its recommendations to selectmen.
