Wampanoag Reach Casino Deal
After months of negotiating taxes, land use and policing, the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe has reached a casino deal with the governor. Earlier this year, the Mashpee tribe came to an agreement with the City of Taunton to build a 500-million-dollar casino that will include three hotels, restaurants, retail outlets and a water park. The project will be built over a five-year period, but there are still several state and federal hurdles to overcome.
