Fed Investigates Casino Delay

posted by John Baibak - 

The inspector general of the U.S.  Department of Interior is investigating the agency's handling of a  casino issue in Connecticut.  

The probe is focused on why the department  refused to act on a request to approve changes to tribal gaming  compacts with the state.  

The approval is needed for the Mohegan and  Mashantucket Pequot tribes to open a planned casino in East Windsor.   

This follows a report from Politico that MGM Resorts, which is building a  casino in Springfield, lobbied against the effort.
