N.H. House panel holding hearing on new casino plan

The House’s tax writing committee will hold a hearing on a new Senate plan to legalize casino gambling in New Hampshire.

The latest plan will go before the Ways and Means Committee on Thursday. It would legalize two casinos sharing a total of 5,000 video slot machines and 240 table games. The House killed a bill a month ago that would have legalized one casino licensed to have 5,000 video slot machines.

The latest bill includes $25 million in revenue sharing with communities. House gambling supporters had talked of adding that to the House bill had it survived. Gambling supporters say it is a way to share money with communities.

Opponents argue the money is a false promise since future legislatures can end the aid if they choose.
