MGM's new casino in Springfield is officially getting some nearby competition. Connecticut Governor Dannel
Malloy signed a bill into law on Tuesday allowing for a new casino to go up in East Windsor.
It'll be the first in the state that isn't built on tribal land, under the management of the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes.
Construction could begin by the end of the year.
First, the Tribal Coalition will have to pay 1 million dollars to the state for a rights fee.
Despite the signing of the law, MGM officials say its fight against what they consider an unconstitutional effort will continue.
