PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - State elections officials are giving supporters and opponents of more table games at Newport Grand to correct their campaign finance reports.

The state Board of Elections voted unanimously Monday to give Jobs for Newport and Citizens Concerned About Casino Gambling additional time to disclose missing information about contributors.

Board member Stephen Erickson described one complaint as a case where “every last ‘T’ hadn’t been crossed and ‘I’ dotted.”

He says a second complaint, he said, was “a situation where you have no information about who actually invested or contributed to this process.”

Newport Grand accused Citizens Concerned About Casino Gambling, an anti-casino group, of reporting major donors who did not list their place of employment or if they had direct or indirect affiliation with an entity or person who operates a gambling facility.
