HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has signed a bill into law that creates a multi-step process for possibly opening a new tribal casino along the Connecticut border.

Malloy’s office announced Monday he signed a bill allowing the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes to issue a request for proposals, or RFP, from municipalities interested in hosting one satellite casino to compete with the planned MGM Resorts casino in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Tribal officials have said they would like to locate the facility along the Interstate 91 corridor in north central Connecticut.

The tribes’ RFP will be posted on the Department of Consumer of Protection’s website for interested communities to review. The tribes own and operate Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Resorts Casino and say a jointly run facility will help protect those jobs.
