Saipan legalises casino operations

    The Senate has passed a bill legalising casinos on Saipan, after nixing the legislation four times in the past, according to reports. The bill will now go back to the governor’s desk to be signed. The bill was passed by a narrow 5 to 1 margin, the reports aid. The bill requires a minimum investment of $2 billion and the construction of a hotel with at least 2,000 rooms.
