Taunton to vote on tribal casino plans Saturday
City could be 1st to give approval

Is Taunton ready to embrace Las Vegas-style casino gambling? The early evidence suggests that the city represents the best chance yet for a gambling resort proposal to win a citywide referendum under the 2011 casino law.
