MASHPEE – The final environmental impact statement on the site of a proposed resort casino in Taunton has been released by the U.S. Department of the Tnterior.

The Mashpee Wampanoag tribe is hoping to build that casino, but first needs land placed in trust; they say this is one of the final steps before the feds rule on their land-in-trust application.

A one month comment period is now underway.
