Gaming Commission Strikes Down Proposal For Brockton Casino03:58

This article is more than 3 years old.

There will be no casino in the city of Brockton.

On Thursday, the state Gaming Commission rejected the application from Mass Gaming and Entertainment to build a casino on the Brockton fairgrounds. The decision leaves southeastern Massachusetts, Region C, without a state-licensed casino, though the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe has begun building one in nearby Taunton.

WBUR's Jack Lepiarz joined Morning Edition to discuss the decision.
