|Subject:||Senate Bill: Title 4 (Amusements) – Gaming Enhancements and Reforms (i.e., Category 3 Slot Machine License Membership Fee, Casino Liquor License, Nonprimary & Auxiliary Locations, Racing Days Reduction and Internet Gaming)|
|In the near future, we plan on introducing legislation, which would amend Title 4 (Amusements), Part II (Gaming), known as the Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act (Gaming Act) by providing for various enhancements and reforms.
Among the Gaming Act enhancements and reforms to be addressed in this legislation are the following:
These enhancements and reforms are reflective of the challenges faced both in establishing and maintaining the viability of the PA gaming industry in an increasingly competitive environment. It is imperative that we avoid the status quo and ensure PA casinos have the tools necessary to continue to thrive and guarantee the job security of the many men and women employed by the PA gaming industry. This proposed legislation is meant to ensure a healthy and vibrant business atmosphere for Pennsylvania’s gaming industry, while maximizing gaming revenue and the positive economic impact of gaming in the Commonwealth.
