Senators agree to review casino owners’ proposals

Sen. Kim Ward (R-Westmoreland) and Sen. Sean Wiley (D-Erie), chairmen of the Senate Community, Economic, and Recreational Development Committee, responded Tuesday to a letter sent by ten Pennsylvania casino owners requesting the General Assembly consider certain proposals to help the industry remain competitive.

In a March 17, 2015, letter, the owners of Pennsylvania’s six Category 1 casino license holders and four Category 2 casino license holders called on the legislature to enact proposals that would, among other things, eliminate minimum staffing requirements, allow for 24-hour alcohol service, expedite slot machine placement, and provide for reinvestment tax credits.

As House budget hearings end, Appropriations members offer thoughts

Thursday marked the end of the three-week House Appropriations Committee budget hearing process where committee members and other interested Representatives heard from nearly every facet of state government receiving funding in the coming fiscal year’s budget.

The PLS Reporter caught up with a few of the committee’s member to get their thoughts on the budget hearing process and what they think will happen with Gov. Tom Wolf’s proposed budget going forward.

“Generally, it’s a lot of what we expected,” said Rep. Seth Grove (R-York). “Not a lot of answers on specifics, they kept it at ‘it’s a comprehensive plan,’ which kind of triggers ‘we want everything and we’re not willing to negotiate,’ which is very bad moving forward meaning it’s either this or nothing.”

In the end, he said, more questions remain.
