Lawmakers in the state of Massachusetts will discuss the issue of expanded gambling in a couple of weeks. That gives both the pro and anti-gambling groups some time to convince lawmakers which way they should vote.

On Tuesday, there was serious lobbying taking place on Beacon Hill and it was coming from two sides with very different viewpoints on the gambling issue. The groups offering facts on Tuesday came from both sides of the issue.

Anti-gambling group United to Stop Slots was represented by President Kathleen C. Norbut. The group gave details of a report that claims that the economic benefits of new casinos would not be as great as the pro-gambling groups would lead voters to believe.

Mohegan Sun, which is the driving force behind the push for expanded casino gambling, showed how problem gambling can be dealt with in an effective way. Mohegan Sun is proposing a new casino in Palmer.

Governor Duval Patrick has long been a proponent of expanded casino resorts in Massachusetts. Patrick ran for governor on a platform that was geared towards gambling expansion. Last year, Patrick had his proposal for casino resorts shot down by legislators.

This time around, however, Patrick has the support of both the House Speaker, Robert DeLeo, and Senate President Therese Murray. Former House Speaker Salvatore DiMasi led the effort last year to keep casino resorts out of the state.
