Pennsylvania Slot Block Approved - Thursday 16th of March 2006

PENNSYLVANIA – As reported by the Pennsylvania Evening Sun: "The House backed an effort to stop a Gettysburg-area slots parlor Tuesday night, approving an amendment to the 2004 slots law that would ban any stand-alone casinos in Adams County.

"Rep. Stephen Maitland, R-Gettysburg, sponsored the amendment that passed by a vote of 199-0.

"The amendment was attached to an omnibus package of changes to the slots law that now heads to the Senate, where the fate of the Gettysburg-area ban is uncertain.

"Maitland's effort is meant to block the Crossroads Gaming Resort and Spa, proposed at routes 30 and 15 by a group of investors led by Gettysburg businessman David LeVan.

"…The House vote is the latest round in a slots debate that has attracted national attention, and it could lay the groundwork for months of legislative maneuvering over Gettysburg-area slots…"
