ECGRA urges letter writing over gaming revenue

Local News

Erie, PA;  The local group in charge of  Erie County’s gaming revenue is hoping for strength in numbers.

Little more than a week ago, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled the money paid by casinos to host counties is unconstitutional.   
 
Now the Erie County Gaming Revenue Authority wants any group, any person who benefits from gaming money to write lawmakers by October 18th.
 
That’s when when the house begins taking testimony about the role of the local share.
 
The Supreme Court gave the general assembly 120 days to make changes, with 111 days left.
 
Contact information for local legislators, as well as Republican and Democratic leaders in the general assembly can be found at www.ecgra.org .
