Casino bill passes House, goes back to Senate Saturday

DOVER — Financial relief is in the cards after all.

On the second-to-last regularly scheduled day of the legislative session, the House approved a modified version of a bill that would give Delaware’s three casinos tax breaks. By a 35-4 vote, with one member absent and one not voting, the chamber sent the measure back to the Senate, which is expected to pass it when the General Assembly convenes Saturday.

“I cannot stress the importance of this bill enough to the city of Dover and the residents of central Delaware,” Rep. Sean Lynn, D-Dover, said.

After negotiations, supporters and opponents reached an agreement on a change to Senate Substitute 1 for Senate Bill 144, which had been awaiting a vote in the House for two months. The amended version reduces the slot tax rates by less but retains the decrease in the table game tax rate, the elimination of the table game license fee and the creation of capital and marketing credits.
