Conn. tribe disputes casino study
Facebook Twitter Email

The Golden Hill Paugussett Tribe of Connecticut is challenging a study which claims a casino will create traffic problems.

The study by the Southwestern Regional Planning Agency said the entire southeastern region of the state would be affected. The tribe claims the assessment is premature because it hasn't found a location for a possible casino.

The tribe is state recognized. It is waiting to hear a final answer on its federal status.
