I'm hearing that Terry Murray doesn't have the votes for an override of the Gov's veto, so DeLeo's giving up. No special session.
Right now … this is kind of a win-for-losing thing for the gov. He doesn't have to stand by an indefensible outcome — slots — coming up on the election. OTOH, he's 0 for 2 on resort casinos.
(Charlie Baker thinks there should be more slots. And that they should be banned. And he totally could have done it better.)
UPDATE: From State House News Service:
“I think the Senate president’s been pretty clear that she’s about a couple of votes short in terms of coming back, so right now I don’t look that as an option for us. So, I’m moving ahead accordingly,”
DeLeo said. Asked if the chances were “pretty low” for action on the gambling bill this fall, DeLeo replied, “Well yes.”
