The study also estimated that Massachusetts casinos would cause the loss of 319 jobs in Rhode Island in 2017. If table games are eventually allowed in Rhode Island, there would be 201 more available jobs at Twin River at that time.
“Massachusetts had just passed it. Is New Hampshire far behind? More in Connecticut? Let’s build our economy and depend on those revenues. A good vibrant economy in this state,” said Chafee.
