The new Class III gaming compacts for two Connecticut tribes, the Mohegan Indians and Mashantucket Pequot, have been approved and published by the federal authorities. Earlier this year, both gaming compacts between the two federally recognized tribes and the state were revised and submitted to the federal government for review. Federal authorities have finally signed off on the new gaming compacts and published them in the Federal Register.
As tribal casinos Foxwoods Resort and Mohegan Sun reopened their doors to the public on Monday without caring for Connecticut health authorities’ repeated warnings, the state has placed warning signs on roadways near the entertainment properties to warn potential visitors of deadly risk of corona virus.
Connecticut Senate Minority Leader Len Fasano paid a visit to a tribal casino earlier this week and said that Governor Ned Lamont appeared to be softening his stance on the reopening of tribal casinos in the state.
