New Hampshire’s ‘casino gambling’ bill fails again

A New Hampshire bill that would have legalized casino gambling at a single location in the state collapsed once again in the state Senate.

It is the only casino bill that is still on the table in the state legislature for consideration this session. Another bill, which is in now committee in the Senate, aims to make "Keno" legal.
