Pa. House puts off casino-expansion bill

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - December 11, 2009

Adding games such as poker, blackjack and craps to slot-machine casinos is supposed to help provide millions of dollars in aid for state-related universities.

On Thursday, Penn State University warned that school operations are suffering as a result of the legislative holdup.

Democrats in the state House of Representatives say they expect to be back Monday to work toward legalizing table games.

But House Republicans largely oppose the measure, making it hard for Democratic leaders to position it for a favorable vote.
