Twin River emerges from bankruptcy

LINCOLN, R.I. – The Twin River slot parlor says it's emerged from bankruptcy protection.

Officials at the facility in Lincoln says its debt has been essentially cut in half, from $598 million to about $300 million.

Twin River offers video lottery terminals but not table games found at traditional casinos.

Gov. Don Carcieri vetoed a proposed ballot question that would have asked voters if they support turning Twin River and Newport Grand into full-scale casinos.
