Although I'm not a big proponent of casinos, Rhode Island has now become so dependent on the revenue, that it certainly cannot afford to lose it. Reality is that Massachusetts will have full casinos up and running in the next couple of years which means a lot of the customers we currently have from Massachusetts may choose to stay in their own state. If we are not competitive, we will have nothing to offer them to bring them into Rhode Island. The revenue from Twin River and Newport Grand is critical to Rhode Island at ths time.
