N.H. House panel recommends spiking casino bill

CONCORD (AP) — A special joint House committee has recommended killing a bill that would legalize a casino in New Hampshire.

The House Ways and Means and Finance committees voted, 23-22, today on a Senate bill that would allow up to 5,000 video slot machines and 150 table games.

The panel first heard presentations on amendments that would do everything from strengthening regulatory controls to making the license 20 years and opening up the licensing to new applicants at that point.

Even with the recommendation to kill the bill, groups are working on changes to it to try to win votes to pass it. A House vote could be as early as next week.
