The state Legislature is expected to give a final approval Wednesday to a casino bill, before sending it to Gov. Deval Patrick for his signature.
The bill produced by a conference committee received preliminary approval late Tuesday in both the state Senate and House of Representatives.
If authorized by Patrick, it will allow up to three resort style casinos in Massachusetts, and one slots parlor, including one for the region between Worcester and Boston.
A developer, David Nunes, has already stated he plans to apply for a license for a casino in Milford, on acreage to the east of Interstate 495, near Route 16.
The casino bill is touted by supporters as a job creation bill. Detractors say it will harm property values, and possibly attract more crime. Is a resort-style casino a good idea for Milford? Vote in the poll and explain your arguments in the comments section.
