The House of Representatives will be voting on the expanded gambling bill this week.
It is a good bill, despite the pandering to other interests that caused the Boston Globe to write an ill-advised editorial denouncing the bill last week.
The expanded gambling bill will help Revere and East Boston and every city and town in this Commonwealth.
It will not solve all our problems. But to suggest that it shouldn’t happen because the issue hasn’t been studied enough is rubbish.
We need jobs and new revenue sources and we need them now – not five years from now.
We believe the bill is going to pass. We hope it does.
