In recent years our habits have carried us through some difficult times, as well: through the Great Recession, through storms that battered our homes and our businesses, and even through our darkest day just over one year ago. Time and again, CT has demonstrated a resolve and a devotion that has carried us forward.
Unfortunately, there's another side to our steady habits--one that hasn't served us quite so well. Over time, certain bad habits have kept CT's government from keeping up with a changing world. Putting off hard decisions left our state with a deficit that was among the worst in the nation just three years ago. I say this not to lay blame for past problems, but because those who forget their history are doomed to repeat it.
I know that during this debate last year, some members of the House expressed concerns about the state's ability to effectively regulate a casino. Responding to these concerns, the Gaming Regulatory Oversight Authority brought in experts from across the country. For months, they worked hard to develop thoughtful recommendations for how to best oversee and move forward with one highly regulated destination casino in New Hampshire.
Instead of funding Massachusetts' needs, let's take this opportunity to invest in New Hampshire's priorities and help grow New Hampshire's economy.
