Bar Gambling Bill Headed To Governor Corbett’s Desk

November 19, 2013

The state Senate Monday approved by a 34-to-15 vote the bill that would allow “small games of chance” gambling in Pennsylvania’s bars.

There was no debate about the bill this time on the Senate floor where the measure had originated.  A spokesperson for Governor Tom Corbett’s office says the Governor will sign it.

The bill had passed the state House by six votes last week after lawmakers had added language to allow non-profit organizations which already have the games to keep forty percent of their proceeds, instead of the current thirty percent.  The House also reportedly eliminated many of the restrictions imposed on the non-profits on the ways they could spend their proceeds.

Under the measure, bars would keep 35 percent of the proceeds, five percent would go to the local municipality where the bar is located, and sixty percent would go to the state.  The “small games” would include pull-tabs, raffles and daily drawings.  Individual prize limits would be set at $2,000 per game and $35,000 per week.  Raffles would be limited to one per month.

The bill has been strongly opposed by the non-profits, who say their operations and fundraising efforts would be severely impacted by the law.
