    Board to hold hearing on Philly casino expansion

    The state gaming board is set to hold a hearing on the proposed expansion of SugarHouse Casino in Philadelphia.

    The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board hearing is scheduled for 2 p.m. Tuesday at the National Constitution Center.


    The casino wants to add a parking garage and expand the size of its gaming floor. Community groups, elected officials and others are expected to testify at the hearing. The board could vote on the plans in the next week after the input is received.

    The gaming board is also slated to hold more hearings Wednesday and Thursday on applications for the city’s second casino license. Those hearings will be held at Lincoln Financial Field. Six groups are vying for that second license.
