Wampanoag's casino likely in New Bedford

Despite the fact that the Indian tribe has acquired 325 acres in Middleboro, Massachusetts, their preferred casino site is still New Bedford.

Wampanoag's casino likely in New BedfordAccording to tribal spokesmen, the overall feeling of New Bedford, with the brick historic buildings and  waterfronts, makes the city the preferred choice for the tribes future casino. Tribal Council Chairman Glenn Marshall is scheduled to meet with New Bedford's mayor Scott Lang next week, and the tribe will discuss possible casino sites with the city. Another town meeting is scheduled for the town of Middleboro, as well.

But before the tribe can open a casino, it would need an approval from the state's legislature. Although the State Senate seems to be pro-casino oriented, the House has shown signs that casinos and slots parlors would be hard to approve in that chamber.
