Pennsylvania House Republicans showed up this morning for a continuation of the debate over legalizing table games at casinos. But Democrats, who control the House, did not. Rank and file Democrats said that party leaders told them in a closed-door meeting they should not expect to be called back for a vote until next week. Democrats gave conflicting reasons for the delay. This comes a day after Governor Ed Rendell questioned whether the legislature will pass a table games bill which is a key piece to the state budget deal that was approved October 9.
