SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - Now that Springfield voters have approved MGM casino proposal, what happens now?
Tuesday's vote does not guarantee a casino in Springfield, but now that the referendum has passed, MGM can officially apply for the sole western Massachusetts gaming license.
Then the Massachusetts Gaming Commission will make the final decision on which plan will become a reality.
West Springfield hopes to hold their referendum on September 10th. No word yet on when Palmer will hold theirs.
