He says the purchase would not be feasible unless table games are allowed. Newport voters rejected table games in a 2012 vote, but Paolino wants to put it back to voters later this year. That would require the city council to approve a resolution asking for the ballot question.
Paolino says the gambling landscape has changed since 2012. Revenue has dropped at Newport Grand and Foxwoods has proposed a casino not far away in Fall River, Mass.
