(NECN) - It's time to go on the record again with the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce.

Chamber President and CEO Paul Guzzi weighed in on the potential effects of efforts to repeal the casino law.

"It's not only reputation, it's a sense of certainty. There's an old saying, 'What business really wants is certainty.' What are the rules? The rules were established, the governor filed the legislation, I think, in 2006. The studies, including the Chamber study, showed 10,000 one-time construction jobs, 17-20,000 permanent jobs, millions of dollars that come to the state's coffers. This process is far down the road, and for it to go on to the initiative petition route at this point is late. I hope the attorney general's position, which is to rule against it going on the ballot, stands up," Guzzi said.

He also talks about Irish retailer Primark's announcement of filing the old Filiene's Basement place in Downtown Crossing and more.
