Casino Repeal Petition To Advance

(Boston, MA) — Organizers of a petition to repeal the state’s casino gambling law say they have enough signatures to put the measure on the 2014 ballot. “Repeal the Casino Deal” says they’ll submit 75-thousand signatures to the Secretary of State by Wednesday. Attorney General Martha Coakley has ruled the ballot question unconstitutional. But supporters disagree, and are waiting for the Supreme Judicial Court to hear an appeal.
