Maine Senate deals another blow to resort casino bill

The Maine Senate voted on March 28th against a bid to build a resort-style casino in southern Maine, dealing a potentially fatal blow to a proposal lawmakers have considered since last year.

An effort to advance the proposal fell two votes short, 16-18. The Senate then voted to concur with the House of Representatives, which last week voted 83-61 to defeat the proposal. Taken together, the votes indicate the bill won’t make it through the Legislature this year.
