VIDEO: Casinos in Massachusetts
People in Somerville sound off on the possibility of building casinos in Massachusetts.
The Massachusetts House of Representatives passed a bill last week that would allow for the construction of casinos in Massachusetts. With initial support from Massachusetts State Senate President Therese Murray (D-Plymouth) and Gov. Deval Patrick, the bill is likely to become law.
Somerville's representatives on Beacon Hill are split but mostly against the bill.
In a poll run on Somerville Patch, which attracted 46 votes as of Tuesday, 65 percent of respondents said they didn't want casinos in the state; 34 percent said they did.
We asked people on the street what they think of casinos coming to Massachusetts. Here's what they said.
