Representative Mike Turzai introduces new gaming legislation

Representative Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) has introduced legislation to help bring integrity, honesty and accountability to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board's (PGCB) awarding of gaming licenses taking over licenses, if need be.

"Whats the remedy when someone you gave a license to proves to be unsuitable?" Turzai asked a former New Jersey gaming regulator. "[He] said a trusteeship was the remedy most often used in New Jersey."

Turzai added this was something that is simply putting language into law. It has been done in the state before, but it is not a regulated law.
