Casino legislation to pass Lower House today

All dailies predicted that the casino bill is likely to clear the Lower House plenary session today with support from the LDP and the Japan Innovation Party, noting that the Komeito party leadership will allow its lawmakers to decide on their own on whether or not to approve it. The Democratic Party plans to boycott the vote. Several papers added that opposition to the bill is fairly strong among LDP Upper House parliamentarians, with a large number of them raising concerns about such issues as gambling addiction and money laundering during yesterday’s meeting on the subject. They stressed that the legislation should be deliberated extremely carefully in the upper chamber.
