A Tinian casino development project has been brought to a stand still after learning of a bill that would legalize gambling in Saipan.

The development team, which is headed by U.S. based managing director Rudy Pamintuan, was prepared for their groundbreaking ceremony on December 28th. The event has now been postponed.

The company will wait and see what the outcome is of House Bill 15-322. The bill is being sponsored by Vice Speaker Justo S.Quitugua.

The bill is aimed to legalize casino games such as Blackjack, Baccarat, and Texas Hold'em, at what was formerly La Fiesta shopping mall. Slot machines would also be allowed at major resorts and hotels.

"We are very disappointed as this action will negatively impact our project on Tinian. Therefore our owners want to stop all movement on our project until the Legislature decides what it wants to do," said Phillip Mendiola-Long, Executive Vice President of Bridge Investment Group.

The Bill has already been approved by the House and now must be approved by the Senate and signed by the Governor to become law.
