A key state Senator says he’s giving up on the prospect that small games of chance in Pennsylvania taverns will generate projected revenue.
A so-called “maverick” Republican made history with his win in a special election for a York County seat this past week.
Early returns suggest the new law allowing for limited small games of chance in Pennsylvania taverns is a bust. And it could blow a hole in Governor Corbett’s proposed budget.
Corbett says funding for the state-related universities -– Temple, Pitt, Lincoln, and Penn State -– as well as the 14 state-owned universities will remain the same in his budget proposal.
A senator proposed a law that would keep Penn State’s $60 million NCAA fine within Pennsylvania.
“If the Penn State football program were to receive the death penalty, I mean, most people just look at it from a football perspective. But from a community perspective, it would be devastating.”
