House Gaming Oversight Committee to hold hearing on problem gambling issues

The Pennsylvania House of Representative’s Gaming Oversight Committee will hold a public hearing on “problem gambling issues” Thursday in Harrisburg.

“The purpose of this hearing is to educate and update the Gaming Oversight Committee members on the disclosure of problem gambling plans, closing hours, monthly statements, credit extension, no smoking and underage fines in relation to gaming in Pennsylvania,” states a memo to members from majority chair Curt Schroder, R-Delaware.

The hearing will be held at 10 am in room G-50 of the Irvis Office Building. It is open to the public, but testimony is by invitation only. However, anyone can submit written testimony by getting copies to Schroder and minority chair Rosita Youngblood, D-Philadelphia, to be read into the record.
