Says bill represents bigger government, more spending, and more entitlements

Concord, NH - Today, the New Hampshire state senate passed SB489 by a vote of .  The bill proposes the establishment of at least six casinos statewide in addition to 17,000 video slot machines. 

Commenting on the passage of the expanded gambling bill was Cornerstone-Action's Director, Kevin Smith:

"Simply put, this bill represents bigger government, more spending, and more entitlements.  Not to mention, are the number of "kick-backs" contained within the bill including more money for Health and Human Services, over 40 new state troopers - each with their own new cruiser, and millions for a commuter rail which doesn't even exist - New Hampshire voters ought to be appalled by this legislation."
