Casinos are the place that offers different gambling games, and people prefer going there to make some easy money and get rich. Gambling is a bad habit, and casinos are banned in most countries, and where they are permitted, it is necessary for them to get a license to run a casino. The V.I. SENATORS OVERRIDE MAPP’S VETO granted a license for casino to the Caravelle hotel as, without a license, it was not possible to run a casino. The locations where the hotel was located made it a bit difficult to obtain a license as there were some complexities related to those areas.
What were the significant demands and requirements?
The V.I. code warrants raised some conditions for the Caravelle hotel in obtaining the casino license, and one of the most prominent was that it demanded that any hotel in that particular are willing to get a license must have minimum seventy-five rooms in it. This requirement was most important, and no casino was allowed to operate without fulfilling this requirement. The governor believed that imposing this requirement would force the hotels to expand and that expansion will create different job opportunities for the people such as masons, painters, electricians, etc. It would boost the business of local traders and will give the economy a much-needed boost.
The governor believed that the gambling company would earn a lot of profits, but to do that, it must give the community and the local trader something in return. However, the Senate opposed his views and overruled the veto.
The senator’s point of view
The senator has an opposing view and believed that that casino must be given permission as it will contribute a lot in improving the economy and boosting the business. The issue and controversy of veto overruling made this issue popular, and in the future, the casino will attract a lot of foreign tourists, which will bring a lot of money to the local market, and the economy will rise like never before.
Finally, the casino was granted a license for a year as they believed that the casino would improve their market and business.
