PA Gaming Control Board Approves Vendor Regulations

HARRISBURG: The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board today unanimously approved regulations governing the vendors that will provide non-gaming goods and services to gaming facility operators in the Commonwealth.

“Act 71 gives the Board the ‘power and duty’ to adopt the regulations necessary to bring expanded gaming to Pennsylvania and ensure its integrity,” said Board Chairman Tad Decker. “With each set of regulations we develop, we move a step closer to the day when expanded gaming can begin in the Commonwealth.”

The approved regulations are available for public inspection on the Board’s Web site, www.pgcb.state.pa.us.
