The Impact of Native American Tribal Business in CT
(2007-05-30)
(wnpr) - The state's take of slot machine revenues alone some $400 million should be enough to convince people that Connecticut leans heavily on the Mashantucket Pequot's Foxwoods Resort Casino, and the Mohegan Tribe's Mohegan Sun as major economic engines for the state.

Aside from the direct investment, charities, small businesses and individuals praise the tribes for their philanthropy, and contributions to the community.

But questions remain: The casinos have also brought traffic, crime, problem gambling, and infrastructure questions from town and state officials.

Today, our guest are Thomas "Tony" Sheridan, President, Chamber of Commerce of Eastern CT, Inc., Chuck Bunnell, Cheif of Staff of the Mohegan Tribe, and Attorney Jackson King, coucil for the Mashantucket Pequot Tribe. We'll discuss the impact of Native American tribal business with representative of both tribes in advance of an economic impact summit next month.
