Casino bill would revoke East Windsor license, set up competition

Supporters of a casino in Bridgeport rolled out a bill Tuesday that would revoke the East Windsor license granted last year to the Mohegan and Mashantucket Pequot tribes and replace it with a competition for proposals for a single casino costing at least $500 million. With the two tribes certain to oppose the bill as vigorously as they fought for the East Windsor license last spring, the bill will set up yet another battle in the Legislature — this time complicated by delays at the East Windsor project and a new debate over sports betting.
