Attorney General Richard Blumenthal advised Connecticut legislators recently to amend the state’s memoranda of understanding with two federally recognized Indian tribes before attempting to legalize Keno in the state.

He said the proposal to bring Keno to Connecticut, suggested recently by Gov. M. Jodi Rell as a way to raise about $60 million a year in new revenue, could risk the $400 million the casinos provide the state annually in slot machine revenues.
