Casino boats take another step towards reality in North Charleston

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Casino boats took another step closer to becoming a reality in North Charleston.

The public safety committee passed the proposal Thursday night and it will now go back to the North Charleston City Council for a final vote next month.

If approved, the gambling boats would sail out from the old navy base. Members say the boats could be operating as early as December.
