Bridgeport lawmakers say not enough time to pass casino bill

The two-part bill requires the commissioners of Consumer Protection and Economic and Community Development to develop and issue a request for proposals from casino developers. Those responses, which would include everything from a market analysis to designs and a construction timeline, would be due by Jan. 1, 2019. The state agencies would then evaluate the proposals and present them to the state Legislature for a possible vote, although one is not required under the bill.
