The first step in a multi-year plan to build a casino in one of the country’s most affluent areas was just completed.
Virginia Sen. Dave Marsden (D-Fairfax) introduced a bill to build a casino in his native Fairfax County. The current plan calls for the creation of a property with enough size and amenities to challenge the popularity of the MGM National Harbor on the Potomac River.
Marsden filed a Fairfax casino bill during the last legislative session but eventually had it withdrawn. His new plan contains amendments to the previous one that would hopefully make it more agreeable to fellow legislators.
