Hope springs eternal, as does the perennial effort by Sen. Lou D’Allesandro to see a casino gambling bill become law in New Hampshire.

The Manchester Democrat has for years brought casino gambling bills to the Senate only to see them die in the House. The House came within one vote of passing casino gambling in 2014, but defeated the idea soundly, 275-82, in 2017.

This year’s effort by the dean of the Senate looked doomed from the start, when SB 310, authorizing two casinos in the state, was tabled by the Senate after a 13-11 vote against it on March 7.
