Today SB 213 by Sharon Hewitt of Slidell is scheduled to be on Senate Judiciary B Committee’s agenda.
This bill provides for a referendum election in St. Tammany Parish relative to riverboat gaming. This bill is one of several steps needed to allow voters in St. Tammany to decide this fall if they want a gaming resort in Slidell.
To learn more the project, the developer, P2E, is hosting what they call a community listening event later today. They say this is an opportunity for Slidell residents to meet with Mayor Greg Cromer, members of the Slidell City Council and executives from Peninsula Pacific Entertainment (P2E). P2E welcomes this opportunity to join with Slidell leadership and meet to talk about the future of this proposed project. The event is today, Monday April 19th from 5:30 to 7:30 PM. It will be held at Slidell’s Municipal Auditorium.
