Gov. Dannel P. Malloy has yet to say whether he'll sign a bill that creates a multi-step process for a possible new tribal casino in Connecticut.
A spokesman for Malloy said Friday the Democrat is still reviewing the legislation, which cleared the House of Representatives hours earlier in the day. The bill already passed the Senate.
Malloy was in Oklahoma City Friday for a speech.
The chairmen of the Mashantucket Pequot and Mohegan tribes said they hope Malloy will sign the bill, allowing them to begin the process of finding a site in north-central Connecticut for a casino to compete with a gambling facility in Springfield, Massachusetts.
Malloy was unenthusiastic about an earlier version of the legislation, which the attorney general warned could prompt constitutional challenges. The bill was later revised.
