(HARTFORD, CT) – Andrew Doba, spokesman for MMCT Venture, the company formed by the Mohegan and Mashantucket Pequot tribes, released the following statement in response to the Office of Fiscal Analysis (OFA) report. The report found that MGM's project will further hurt state finances by nearly $70 million in its first year of operation. 

"We are fully aware of the negative impact MGM's facility will have on both jobs and revenue. A hit like this to the state's bottom line will lead to more cuts to essential social services, and more tough choices for our state leaders. We need to get this right and make sure that losses of this magnitude never come to fruition."
