Slot Machines

The Massachusetts Senate yesterday approved a bill, S2227, to permit slot machine gambling at the state's racetracks. The bill now moves to the House, but the Boston Globe reports that the House is not in a hurry to take up the measure. State House News Service reports that "the chances for introduction of slot machines at the state's racetracks are in fact probably better than they've ever been. They're just not good enough."
