APNewsBreak: Conn. cuts casinos' security costs
APNewsBreak: Conn. agrees to cut security assessments for 2 casinos following tribes' appeals
By The Associated Press

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) ' Connecticut has agreed to slash its assessment for security provided to two of the country's largest casinos following appeals from the American Indian tribes that run the resorts.

A spokeswoman for Gov. Dannel P. Malloy tells The Associated Press the state has reduced the tab for state police, liquor control agents and auditors at Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Resort Casino by about $4.5 million. Spokeswoman Colleen Flanagan said Monday the reduction reflects the state's commitment to shift some responsibilities to the tribes.

Talks opened in August between the governor's office and tribal officials who argued the casinos' internal security capabilities have evolved significantly since they signed compacts with the state in the 1990s.

The assessments for the last fiscal year were $7.3 million for Foxwoods and $6.8 million for Mohegan Sun.
