Rhode Island Governor Vetoes 24-Hour Gambling Bill

Feather News


Rhode Island Governor Don Carcieri vetoed recent legislation that would have allowed the state's two slot parlors to remain open 24-hours on weekends and holidays.

Gov. Carcieri said that residents should have a say in the matter. Last November, a non-binding referendum that would have permitted 24-hour gambling at Twin River, located in the town of Lincoln, was not approved by Lincoln voters.
