NORTHAMPTON, MA (WSHM) -

Northampton's city council has approved a request from Mayor David Narkewicz Thursday night, regarding a study to look at the impact a casino in Springfield would have on the city.

Narkewicz asked for $22,000 for the study.

He says MGM's proposed $800 million casino in Springfield's South End would likely hurt several aspects of his city including dining and entertainment.
