PA Gaming Control Board To Keep Application Deadline

HARRISBURG: The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board will keep its December 28, 2005, deadline for the submission of all applications for operating licenses, Chairman Tad Decker said today.

"After polling Board members individually, I have concluded that any proposal to change the deadline for submitting these applications will not be approved by the Board," Decker said. "Given the time sensitivity of the application process, we are making this announcement now, rather than at the next Board meeting on December 1, to give our potential applicants as much notice as possible."

Decker reminded potential applicants that application forms, as well as instructions on how to submit applications to the PGCB, are available on the Board's Web site, www.pgcb.state.pa.us, under the "Licensure" heading.
