The House approved a measure that effectively removes gaming law enforcement responsibility from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board to the Attorney General’s office. Specifically, the bill takes the funding for the Bureau of Investigation and Enforcement (BIE) from the Control Board and places it with the Attorney General.

Later, the Senate removed a House amendment from separate legislation that takes enforcement authority from the Control Board and places it with the Attorney General.

The Senate action sets up a stalemate between the two chambers.
