MA Casino Panel to Hold First Meeting

The five-member panel that will oversee casino gambling in Massachusetts is set to be sworn in and hold its first official meeting.   WAMC's Tristan O'Neill reports...

The agenda for Tuesday's meeting of the state Gaming Commission in Boston includes a number of administrative matters, including the election of a secretary and treasurer, the hiring of staff and the choosing of a law firm and outside gaming consultant.

The commissioners are also expected to adopt a mission statement and discuss several other matters, including ethics rules.

The panel was created by the casino gambling law that passed last year. It will eventually accept bids for up to three resort-style casinos and a single slots parlor.

The commission is headed by Stephen Crosby. Its other members are Gayle Cameron, James McHugh, Bruce Stebbins, and Enrique Zuniga.
