mass casino referendum

In other words, the state retains the right to change laws, which amounts to "one of the many foreseeable risks that casinos, slots parlors, and their investors take when they choose to apply for a license and invest in a casino or slots parlor. My office worked cooperatively with both parties to put this issue before the Court. A repeal would end the yearslong vetting process that involved glitzy campaigns by casino operators to woo the public with promises of economic development and entertaining revitalization of beleaguered towns and cities. Kealy was an assistant attorney general from to , and he helped review petitions during that time. Mohegan Sun said in a statement: "We believe we have the best plan to bring thousands of jobs, world class entertainment, local economic development, and increased tourism to the region and that is our focus right now. To back up its decision, the court referred to an case in Kansas in which breweries sued the state for outlawing the sale of alcohol except for medical or scientific use. The commission is proceeding with its review of two casino plans for Greater Boston, from Mohegan Sun and Wynn. They knew that the Initiative Petition and Referendum was available out there, and that there was significant opposition to gambling within Massachusetts both inside and outside of the legislature. That way, MGM could avoid paying millions of dollars in fees and construction obligations triggered by the state's license award until after the repeal was resolved. The court also brought up a case of the Mississippi legislature granting a year charter in to a private company to conduct a lottery, and then reversing course by forbidding a lottery the next year. So, there is a risk there.{/INSERTKEYS}{/PARAGRAPH} The Massachusetts Gaming Commission chose MGM Springfield for the western Massachusetts license on June 13 but granted a request to delay construction until after the referendum issue was resolved. We will also join the chorus of others making the case to voters on why this law is good for workers, good for the economy, and good for the Commonwealth. Supreme Court "declared that a 'legislature cannot bargain away the police power of a State,'" the Massachusetts court wrote in its decision. He said he does not believe that MGM, Mohegan Sun or other casino companies would be able to successfully sue the state to recoup the tens of millions of dollars they spent campaigning to get casino licenses. If voters repeal the law, it could upend the project and other proposals for casinos in Greater Boston and in southeastern Massachusetts. The Supreme Judicial Court, in its decision , wrote, "We conclude that the Attorney General erred in declining to certify, and grant the requested relief so that the initiative may be decided by the voters at the November election. A repeal, however, would mean fewer gambling outlets popping up in the Northeast and sapping slot revenue from both Connecticut casinos, Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Resort Casino. A group called Repeal the Casino Deal sprung up after legislation allowing casinos was passed in Its statewide campaign manager, Darek Barcikowski, said Tuesday that the group had gathered about 90, signatures last fall and an additional batch of nearly 27, signatures this spring, as required. It is scheduled to designate a winner in September. The brewers said the state's decision amounted to the taking of property, but the U. Kealy, clinical associate professor law at the Boston University School of Law. MGM Springfield President Michael Mathis said that his company spent three years collaborating with and talking to people in western Massachusetts about the value of a casino resort as a catalyst for economic development. The lottery company sued the state, but the U. Coakley had said that a petition was unconstitutional because it, in effect, took property in the form of contract rights without compensating the casino companies. Mohegan Sun, MGM, Wynn and others had to pay a fee to be vetted by the state's gaming commission, which Coakley argued gave the companies an implied contractual right to a final decision regarding the license. Sarno said in a statement Tuesday. Coakley said Tuesday: "My office had conducted a legal review of this ballot question, but knew it would ultimately be decided by the Court. The repeal effort gained supporters throughout the state as a confederacy of small anti-gambling groups fought and won municipal elections, defeating casino proposals in West Springfield, East Boston, Palmer and Milford. {PARAGRAPH}{INSERTKEYS}The high court in Massachusetts ruled Tuesday that a petition to effectively ban casinos will go to a vote in November, potentially erasing plans for destination resorts in Springfield and Greater Boston. The Supreme Judicial Court, however, wrote in its decision, "substantial economic loss arising from a change in law under the core police power does not constitute a taking of private property that triggers an entitlement to fair compensation. At the heart of the legal debate over the referendum effort was the concept of contract rights versus the state's right to "police power," meaning the ability to regulate activities such as gambling. Petitioners gathered more than the required 68, signatures last fall to put the issue on the ballot, but Attorney General Martha Coakley declined to certify the petition. Barcikowski said he was confident that voters will repeal the legislation. Even Massachusetts has had a similar case when it banned greyhound racing through a petition process in , said Sean J. Supreme Court rejected the claim, saying that the state had the legislative power to protect "the health, the morals, or the safety of the public," and that brewers weren't guaranteed that the state would allow alcohol forever. We are fully prepared to extend this message to a larger audience through a statewide campaign to educate the voters on the enormous economic benefits that would be lost to the taxpayers of the Commonwealth in a repeal. Now, with today's decision, voters will have the final say. She said that it was unconstitutional because it resulted in the taking of property in the form of contract rights.
