Patrick Files Taunton Casino Compact With Feds

In a letter dated Friday and addressed to Interior Secretary Ken Salazar, Patrick urges support of the deal, which would pay the state 21.5 percent of gross gambling revenue from a proposed $500 million casino in Taunton, just 10 miles from Easton's border.
