Four Pennsylvania Republican State Senators filed a Co-Sponsorship Memoranda outlining their plan to introduce legislation in the near future to permit existing casinos to offer Internet gaming to individuals physically located in the Commonwealth.

The full details of the proposal were not yet made available, however, the Memoranda does contemplate the development of expanded compulsive and problem gambling programs specifically related to Internet gaming by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board and the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs.

This is the first measure put forth in Pennsylvania’s Senate this session.  You can view our detailed analysis of the multiple Internet gaming bills introduced in the Assembly here,here and here.
