Boston Herald: No casino in Mass. yet, but commissioners have already spent $1.6m
The state’s plodding effort to launch casino gambling hasn’t stopped a state commission from burning through $1.6 million in taxpayer money on consultants, travel and credit card expenses, records show. The spending on consultants and other expenses doesn’t include what the state is paying to commission staff, and for the six-figure salaries of board members. That is expected to amount to several million dollars extra.
