June 13th, new date MGM could get license

BOSTON (WWLP) – The Massachusetts Gaming Commission has pushed back the potential day MGM could get a gaming license from May 30 to June 13th.  That’s the earliest MGM Springfield could be awarded a gaming license.

MGM has asked for a delay in the license approval process, but still be awarded a license since it would owe the state $85 million within 30 days of receiving it with it being unclear if there will be a vote in November to potentially repeal the casino law.

The Supreme Judicial court is expected to rule by July 9th, if there will be a referendum in November.  Oral arguments in that case are set for Monday May 5th.
