Problem Gambling Month In PA

HARRISBURG – The PA Senate approved a resolution declaring March as “Problem Gambling Awareness Month.” The resolution is to ensure that Pennsylvanians are informed about the issue of problem gambling and the programs available to help those who have been adversely affected. According to the National Council on Problem Gambling, 2% to 3% of the U.S. population will have a gambling problem in any given year. The resolution urges the PA Gaming Control Board to continue its outreach efforts and to work with the gaming industry to develop and implement problem gambling programs at licensed facilities and further promote community-based programs in the Commonwealth.
