11/28/08 - Conn. casinos want 24-hour alcohol sales

Author:

Town leaders near Connecticut’s two casinos say they worry about public safety if the casinos get the state’s permission to serve alcohol around the clock.

Foxwoods Resort Casino and Mohegan Sun say the Indian-run casinos could better compete with Atlantic City casinos if they could serve alcohol 24 hours a day. Current state liquor laws prohibit selling or giving away alcohol after 1 a.m. on weeknights and after 2 a.m. on weekends.
