We’ve got the do-nothing gamblin’ blues By Dan Haar, CT Post July 16, 2018 at 12:01 am It’s hot outside, beach season, and the state Capitol is mostly empty these days as the governor closes out his eight-year tenure and members of the General Assembly fish for votes. Precisely the time we should worry about lack of any action on a state gambling strategy. All is quiet on Bridgeport Harbor, where a casino might or might not rise up to employ 2,000 people in the next few years. All is quiet when it comes to sports betting at Sportech’s Winners and Bobby V’s Off-Track Betting locations, which could someday host wagering on athletic events, or not. And all is status quo at Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun when it comes to Connecticut’s gaming strategy — which may be just the way the tribes like it. But for the rest of us, it’s a lost opportunity that could cost tens or even hundreds of millions of dollars and the chance to add thousands of jobs.
