Glad It Failed.

I'm very surprised the house didn't spend more time than it did on the 'motion for reconsideration' for the casino gaming legislation. I'm glad that they did. This is one real advantage to having such a large legislative body.

Too bad for Salem. But by the way, there is the rest of the state to consider.

This is why I'm really glad this whole idea got killed. There is a rest of the state to consider and this is a monumental, irreversible decision that needed more attention to detail and leadership than it got. Coming up with a framework for regulation(s), jurisdiction and more laws isn't attention it's bureaucracy in motion.

It should be interesting to see how the next slate of elected officials handles this very same issue.
