Delaware Slots Expansion Includes Funding for Treatment - Friday 20th of January 2006

DOVER, Delaware – As reported by the Delaware State News: "When state officials, General Assembly members and casino officials agreed to expand slot machine operations in Delaware, the pact included a provision to increase the guarantee of funding for gambling treatment services.
