No Easy Fix for Slots Tax

It was evident at a hearing in Harrisburg recently that the Pennsylvania General Assembly will be pulled in multiple directions as it tries to fix a local tax on casinos that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court declared unconstitutional last month.  Numerous lawmakers on the House Gaming Oversight Committee expressed interest at the hour-long hearing in not just making the tax constitutional - so counties and municipalities don't lose money and can meet budget deadlines - but also in tweaking the formula used to distribute the $140 million a year from the slots tax that goes to municipalities  and counties.
