Legislation to allow casino gambling in the state, including one site in Hampden County, has been proposed by a state Senate leader and other legislators….
State Rep. Todd M. Smola, R-Palmer, believes the legislation has less chance of passing without Patrick’s backing. “If I had to make a prediction, I would say casino gambling is not on the horizon,” Smola said.
