Erie County not jumping on gambling expansion bandwagon

Local News

It looks like Erie County will not have expanded gaming, at least for now.

Erie County Council voting six to one to restrict expanded gaming into places like truck stops.  The new state law that permits expanded gaming also allows county governments to say no.  Supporters say it would not impact revenues at Presque Isle Downs but some council members want to study the issue further.

Council can vote to lift the ban at a later date.
