Debate heading behind closed doors-Mass Casino

The debate over casino gambling is heading at the back closed doors.

On Tuesday, legislative leaders are likely to name the appointees to a six member conference committee charged by means of taking the Massachusetts House and Senate versions of the casino bill and draft a final compromise.

Those discussions aren’t open to the public. Gov. Deval Patrick has emphasize he wants a voice in the final bill, which is being hammered out as lawmakers close in on the July 31 end of their official session.

One of the key differences among the bills is the question of slot machines at racetracks.

The House bills allow two casinos and 750 slots at each of the state’s four racetracks. The Senate bill calls for three casinos and maintain the existing ban on racetrack slots.
