“Nine thousand jobs.

“An independent study shows Connecticut will lose more than nine thousand jobs, and a hundred million a year in state revenue that goes to hold down property taxes.

“Because Massachusetts is building a billion dollar casino in Springfield that will take business from Connecticut.

“But we can save half the jobs and revenue, by letting the Mashantucket and Mohegan Tribes build a new casino at their own expense.

“Connecticut jobs depend on it.”
