PGCB Classification System
The PGCB is committed to providing all positions within its organization with a fair and competitive compensation opportunity; reflective of the job's relative value to the organization and consistent with the economic environment of the Commonwealth. On January 6, 2011 the PGCB implemented an amended classification and compensation structure that categorizes all positions within the agency.
In addition to the positions created and maintained by the agency, the Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act establishes the process of appointment of the PGCB members and, at 4 Pa.C.S. § 1201 (i) (1), states, "The Executive Board as established in the act of April 9, 1929 (P.L.177, No.175), known as The Administrative Code of 1929, shall establish the compensation of the members." Pursuant to that legislative provision, the Executive Board established the compensation for the Chairman of the PGCB at $150,000 annually and the compensation for the other Board Members at $145,000 annually.
