Massachusetts expands casino options

The state gambling commission voted unanimously Thursday to allow commercial developers to move forward with proposals for a casino in Southeastern Massachusetts, providing a potential fallback in case the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe is not able to clear all the legal hurdles it faces to build a tribal casino.
