Satellite Casino Legislation Proposed

HARRISBURG – Washington County Sen. Camera Bartolotta is introducing legislation that would expand gambling in Pennsylvania. Senate Bill 750 would authorize up to 25 satellite casino locations, each of which could have up to 500 machines. Bartolotta said that the satellites would provide local share revenue to the host municipality, host county, and local clubs. She added that upon their opening, the satellite locations would create more than 3,000 new jobs and over $700 million in annual economic benefit for the Commonwealth. The bill is before the Senate Community, Economic & Recreational Development Committee for consideration.
