Next week, Bridgeport lawmakers will hold a joint news conference with MGM officials to announce legislation that will be proposed for the upcoming General Assembly session. The bill will raise the stakes on MGM’s plan to build a $675 million casino in Bridgeport, putting it at odds with the tribal-owned casinos in the state. On Thursday’s Brad & Dan Show, state Sen. Tony Hwang, R-28th District, will talk about how both sides are missing the big picture in this game of high-stakes casino siting.
Also, the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center in Hartford and the Western Connecticut Health Network Alliance have announced a new partnership on providing pediatric care. Dr. Alicia Briggs will talk about this new, healthcare venture.
Plus your calls at 888-574-2723 and Cindy Weightman on traffic. And Brad & Dan will have the latest on weather, news and sports.
Brad & Dan get your Thursday morning started at 6:00.
