A proposal by two Maine Indian tribes to build a $650 million casino in the southern part of the state has generated a lot of controversy. Casino advocates say gaming monies will enable the tribes to become self-sufficient while also boosting state revenues. Opponents, on the other hand, say such a facility would lead to increased crime in the area, take employees away from area businesses, and cost the state millions to treat people with gambling addiction problems. Governor Angus King even went so far as to say casinos would take money from the pockets of local people and create a “Sodom-by-the-Sea.”
