Pennsylvania regulator to hold public hearing on proposed casino

| By Conor Mulheir
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) will hold a public input hearing on August 16 in the municipality of College Township, Centre County, to consider an application made by SC Gaming Op Co. to operate a category 4 casino in the area.

Category 4 casinos may operate anywhere from 300 to 750 slot machines, and up to 30 table games. Such properties may add 10 more tables games after their first year of operation.

The hearing on August 16 will allow individuals to voice their support or opposition to the proposed casino, and allow those with an interest in the proposal to learn more about the project.

The deadline for registration to speak or submit written testimony is August 12, and a separate public hearing will be held at a later date in Harrisburg, where SC Gaming Op Co. representatives and the PGCB’s office of enforcement counsel will offer updated evidence and provide arguments as to whether the license should be granted.
