CONCORD, NH – Today, the New Hampshire state senate passed SB489 by a vote of 14 to 10. The bill proposes the establishment of at least six casinos statewide in addition to 17,000 video slot machines.
Commenting on the passage of the expanded gambling bill was Cornerstone-Action’s Director, Kevin Smith:
“Simply put, this bill represents bigger government, more spending, and more entitlements. Not to mention, are the number of “kick-backs” contained within the bill including more money for Health and Human Services, over 40 new state troopers – each with their own new cruiser, and millions for a commuter rail which doesn’t even exist – New Hampshire voters ought to be appalled by this legislation.”
