Exclusive: Pennsylvania Online Poker Bill Shelved Until The Spring
Legislation Won't Be Part Of 2016 Budget Deal
An online gaming bill sitting in Pennsylvania’s House will not pass this year, but it will be up for consideration in the spring, Card Player was told Monday by the office of Rep. John Payne, the sponsor of the legislation.
The legislation, House Bill 649, aims to make other changes to the state’s gambling industry and was being advertised as part of the solution to the state’s ongoing 2016 budget discussions.
Online gaming will be now be considered along with the state’s pension issue, Card Player was told.
Pennsylvania determined that regulated online gaming would eventually be a $300 million market, helping shore up revenues for the state’s casino industry.
The Keystone State is looking to join Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware with regulated online gaming. Other states considering the games are New York, California and Massachusetts.
