Things Get Heated

Sports betting regulation in Connecticut came close but there now appears to be some friction.

  • Late Tuesday it was announced that the state of Connecticut has reached an agreement with the powerful Mohegan Tribe to offer sports betting.
  • The Mashantucket Pequot (Foxwoods Casino), according to tribal Chairman Rodney Butler, was at “fourth-and-inches” in terms of an agreement.
  • But they were far from happy with Governor Ned Lamont's proclamation that Connecticut had only reached a deal with one of the two tribes.  “After months of closed-door negotiations, it’s offensive that Governor Lamont would announce an agreement with only one of the two Tribal Nations that have been a party to the negotiations, despite full knowledge that both sovereign Nations are needed to implement any agreement,” Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Chairman Rodney Butler said in a statement late Tuesday afternoon. “We have participated in these discussions in good faith and consider today’s events extremely disrespectful in terms of process and substance.”
  • Lamont tried playing nice on Wednesday: “The administration agrees that the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation must be a party in any agreement, and that this agreement is best for the entire state, especially Eastern Connecticut, where the tribes employ thousands of people and contribute significantly to local economies and communities. This expansion of gaming in Connecticut is a financial benefit to both tribes and will provide long-term stability for both sovereign governments. Governor Lamont is urging the Mashantucket Pequot Tribal Nation to join this agreement immediately, and Eastern Connecticut legislators should do the same.”
  • Connecticut's two tribes have a monopoly on the state's gaming sector.
