A new proposal would bring new casinos to Connecticut, which faces gaming competition from neighboring states.

Foxwoods Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun have been dominant forces in the gambling world since entering the market in the 1990s. With that success came revenue for the state of Connecticut. But neighboring states are getting in on the game, opening their own casinos seeking many of the same patrons. 

This hour, a conversation with the chairmen of both tribal casinos, to learn more about the expansion plans and effects of a new casino in the state.

Does Connecticut need more casinos to save jobs and state revenue?

Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter.

  • Tony Hwang - Republican state senator representing the 28th District
