Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy and the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribal leaders on Thursday signed amended compacts and memoranda of understanding between the state and the two federally recognized tribes.
The revised agreements ensure the proposed, jointly owned casino the tribes want to build in East Windsor will not compromise the state’s current revenue-sharing arrangement with the tribes, who own and operate Foxwood Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun.
The General Assembly will next act on the amended agreements, followed by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
MGM Resorts says it will continue to challenge the constitutionality of the process in court.
