Next Step For Mass. Casinos

Last month, voters in East Boston soundly defeated a plan to construct a billion dollar casino at Suffolk Downs race track. But residents of Revere approved the project by a margin of nearly two to one.

Then, in a surprise move Suffolk Downs' owners and Revere city officials announced they'd build a smaller casino but only on Revere's side of the track. They've since found a new gaming partner in the venture- Mohegan Sun.

But now, they're scrambling. They have until the end of the month to meet a state imposed deadline. Today, at a press conference at Revere City Hall, the partners announced how they'd do it.
