House Minority Leader’s Statement on Attorney General’s Ban of Illegal Gaming at ‘Cyber Cafes’

BOSTON—House Minority Leader Bradley H. Jones, Jr. issued the following statement today in support of the Attorney General's move to ban illegal gaming at “cyber cafes”.

I am pleased to hear of the Attorney General’s swift action in shutting down illegal gaming operations at so-called ‘cyber cafes’. This preventative measure will ensure that illegal gaming has no place in Massachusetts. These establishments were enabling illegal activity in the Commonwealth and hurting the lottery, which in turn hurts our cities and towns.
