Report: Lawmaker To Revise Casino Bill, Bailout Less - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Report: Lawmaker To Revise Casino Bill, Bailout Less

Posted: Updated:

DOVER, Del. - The money doesn't look like it will be rolling in for cash-strapped casinos in Delaware.

The sponsor of a bill that would have given financial breaks to the casinos at a cost of more than $20 million, says the measure will be amended before a Senate vote next week. That amendment  keeps intact a proposal that the state shares slot machine vendor costs with the casinos, costing the state $9.9 million for the next fiscal year.

47 ABC reached out to Dover Downs and Harrington Casino for comment, but they declined to speak with us.
