CONCORD, N.H.  — A state Senate committee is considering a bill that legalizes four casinos with a maximum of 10,000 video slot machines in New Hampshire.

The Ways and Means Committee is scheduled to discuss the bill on Tuesday.

Last month, the House Ways and Means Committee abandoned its longstanding opposition to video slots and recommended legalizing two casinos. Each casino could install 5,000 video slots and offer table games.

Both bills face votes early next year by their respective chambers.

New Hampshire’s bill comes up on the same day voters in neighboring Maine will decide a pair of gambling referendum questions, one to allow racinos in Biddeford and near Calais, and another proposing a new casino in Lewiston.
