BOSTON — Casino proposals in western and southeastern Massachusetts are the focus of discussions before state gambling regulators.

The state Gaming Commission will hear Thursday from Mass Gaming And Entertainment, which is looking to build a $677 million resort on the fairgrounds in Brockton, a city south of Boston.

MGM officials will also present changes they’re proposing for their $800 million casino in the western Massachusetts city of Springfield.

MGM has proposed eliminating a 25-story hotel tower and replacing it with a six-story structure, among other changes.

Regulators will also continue their discussion about possibly regulating the daily fantasy sports industry.

Boston-based DraftKings is among the leading companies offering the online contests, in which players pay an entry fee and compete for cash prizes by picking teams of real life athletes.
