N.H. House rejects casino bills

Senate still has its own bill on the table

(Continued)

The House vote disappointed the governor.

“Despite today’s vote, I continue to believe that developing our own plan for one high-end casino is the best course of action for investing in the priorities that are critical to long-term economic growth,” she said. “Soon, we will all see the impact of Massachusetts casinos right across our border in the form of lost revenue and potential social costs. One way or another, we will need to recognize what is happening around us and take action to protect the interests of New Hampshire’s people and economy.”

Senate President Chuck Morse, R-Salem, who has supported establishing a casino at Rockingham Park, also was disappointed.

“Once again we are disappointed that the House failed to pass this important piece of legislation that would have brought needed economic development and job growth to New Hampshire,” Morse said.
