Philadelphia casino update.

    Philadelphia casino update. A ruling by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court that is expected any day now could clear the last major hurdle for one of Philadelphia’s two planned casinos. We’ll talk where things stand for both the developers of Sugarhouse and Foxwoods casinos who have faced stiff opposition from some local lawmakers. We’ll talk with CHRIS BRENNAN who is covering the casino development projects for The Philadelphia Daily News, also we’ll call out to TERRY GILLEN who is the senior advisor to Philadelphia’s mayor on the casinos, LEIGH WHITAKER a spokeswoman for Sugarhouse, and MAUREEN GARRITY a spokeswoman for Foxwoods.
