Pennsylvania Holds Hearings To Legalize Video Poker

Pennsylvania lawmakers held hearings last month on a bill backed by Governor Ed Rendell to legalize video poker in bars across the state. The state House Gaming Oversight Committee held hearings in Westmoreland County, in the western part of the state, on legislation that would allow establishments with state liquor licenses, such as bars, taverns, restaurants and clubs, to have up to five machines each, with revenues dedicated to tuition assistance for students of state colleges and universities.
