The Mashpee Wampanaoag tribe's revised gambling compact with Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick has been stalled in the Joint Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies for several weeks. "The House does not have an interest in a hearing on the gaming compact. I would certainly want to hear it. These folks have come a long way. They've worked very hard for this. I would certainly be willing to hear it," said state Sen. Gale Candaras, Senate chairwoman of the committee.
