With the Massachusetts House and Senate now having their own bills on expanded gaming, the fate of slots at the state's four racetracks, including HTA member Plainridge Racecourse, now moves to the critical stage: conference committee.

A six-member committee is to be named today (Tuesday July 6), and will meet in private closed session to discuss a compromise bill.

The Senate bill excludes track slots and provides for three casinos. The House bill approves two casinos and 750 slots at Plainridge and other tracks.

The bill faces scrutiny, and a possible veto, from Governor Deval Patrick, who favors the Senate version.
