MGM Springfield suitability hearing date set

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WSHM) -

On Dec. 2, Springfield residents will find out if MGM Springfield clears a major hurdle in its bid to bring a proposed $800 million casino resort to the city's South End.

The Massachusetts Gaming Commission has announced they will review the company's background investigation.

The commission will likely vote on whether or not MGM is suitable to apply for a final license to operate a casino.

MGM is the last group standing in Western Mass, after both Hard Rock and Mohegan Sun failed to win over voters in West Springfield and Palmer respectively.
