CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — New Hampshire lawmakers are once again considering allowing casino gambling, but the effort hasn’t gained much traction so far.

The Senate is expected to vote today on a bill that would authorize a single casino in the state. A similar bill that would have authorized two casinos passed the Senate last year, but it failed in the House, which has never gone for the idea.

Gov. Maggie Hassan has supported allowing casinos, but the Concord Monitor reports that most of the candidates vying to replace her when her term ends this year are lukewarm on the idea.
