    Emotions high at Taunton casino hearing

    They came to talk about traffic, water, wetlands and economic development, but it was emotion that took over a hearing to review the Mashpee Wampanoag Tribe’s proposal to build a $500 million casino in the city.
    Tuesday’s 2½-hour hearing at Taunton High School that drew more than 100 people was the second in consecutive nights held by the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs to hear public comments on the tribe’s Draft Environmental Impact Statement. The environmental review is part of the tribe’s application to have 155 acres in Taunton and 170 acres in Mashpee taken into federal trust as its initial reservation.
