New England in Brief
HARTFORDThe gambling industry continues to explore the idea of more casino gambling in New England. State lawmakers, business executives, lawyers, industry analysts, and others are expected to gather today and tomorrow at a regional conference at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Conn. BNP Media, an industry media company, and Spectrum Gaming Group, a research firm, are sponsoring the first New England Gaming Summit. An organizer says the failed effort in Massachusetts this year to permit casino gambling was one reason organizers turned to New England for the conference. Charles Anderer of BNP Media said legislative uncertainty remains in Massachusetts, but looking at gambling regionally makes sense.
