   Massachusetts casino regulators appear ready to formally endorse MGM’s role in an urban renewal project in downtown Springfield.


          The largest brownfields mill redevelopment in New England is said to be ahead of schedule. Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker visited the project in Ludlow Thursday.
