Mohegan Sun Casino Resort Smoking Plan

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal likes the smoking plan recently submitted by the Mohegan Tribe for the Mohegan Sun Casino Resort. The AG has been pressuring the tribe to adopt some sort of smoking control at its casinos as a way of heading off a possible collision on sovereignty if the legislature adopts a ban that applies to the casino. The legislature is under considerable pressure from the casino’s table dealers union to adopt such a ban. The plan adopted by the casino creates a smoke-free zone in most of the casino, with the exception of some slot machine areas. It will be implemented in phases, in tandem with a new ventilation system. Blumenthal would like the legislature’s bill to include Mohegan’s smoking plan.
