HARRISBURG – The Senate Community, Economic and Recreational Development Committee, chaired by State Senator Chris Gebhard (R-48), will hold two separate public hearings next week examining the state’s gaming laws and the skill games operators.
On Monday, Oct. 2, from 10 a.m. to noon, the committee will hear from industry experts and representatives from Pennsylvania based casinos and video gaming terminals (VGTs). On Wednesday, Oct. 4, from 9-11 a.m., the committee will hear from industry experts and representatives from the Pennsylvania skills games operators. Both hearings will be held in Hearing Room 1, North Office Building, Harrisburg.
“These hearings are necessary considering all the recent changes in the gaming landscape since the last update to the Gaming Control Act,” Gebhard stated. “I welcome the chance to hear testimony and allow the committee to directly question stakeholders to better understand the issues.”
The hearing will be available live at www.pasenategop.com.
