On the Defeat of Casino Bill, SB 242 (2017)

May 4, 2017

The New Hampshire House has killed 2017’s version of a casino bill, voting “inexpedient to legislate” by an overwhelming 275-82 margin.

Shannon McGinley, Cornerstone Action’s executive director, said following the vote, “The House has done the right thing by keeping New Hampshire free from casinos and slots parlors. This is a victory for New Hampshire families. Cornerstone’s supporters are proud to join forces with the large and diverse coalition of neighbors who know that New Hampshire is stronger when it’s casino-free.”
