Mass. Senate balks at GOP tax plan in the casino bill

The Massachusetts Senate has again late debate on its casino bill, this moment after smoking opponent said they feared language allowing smoking could be slipped into the bill.

Sen. Jamie Eldridge said that yet though both the House and Senate bills would create the casinos smoke-free, the reality that the language in each bill is somewhat different could allow a House and Senate conference committee to add smoking to the last bill.

Earlier in the day, the Senate discarded a Republican-backed plan that would have dumped all future casino revenues into a tax release fund for private and commercial property owners statewide.

The Senate instead voted to make a much smaller tax relief fund for senior property owners.
