Remember when state lawmakers finally passed a state budget after a 100-day delay? Well, the deal is still not quite done.
The original agreement was supposed to allow the expansion of table games in Pennsylvania casinos, but that proposal seems to have hit a serious road bump in the legislature. A vote planned for yesterday was delayed.
The legislation is opposed by most Republicans and some Democrats. Some lawmakers have a problem with gambling in general, while others are concerned that the legislation is too complicated and want more time to study the bill.
The entire thing is mind-boggling. It took the legislature more than three months to pass a budget ... and it turns out that, really, it still hasn't. We'll be keeping a close eye on this issue and bring you the latest developments.
