About the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board:

The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board was established in 2004 with the passage
of Act 71, also known as the Race Horse Development and Gaming Act.
Pennsylvania's first new state agency in nearly 30 years, the Gaming Control
Board is tasked to oversee all aspects of the state's casino industry. The 11

per day in tax revenue. A portion of that money is used for property tax
reduction to all Pennsylvania homeowners; provide funds to the Commonwealth's
horse racing industry, fire companies, a statewide water and sewer project
grant program, and the state's General Fund; and, established a new stream of
tax revenue to local governments that host casinos for community projects.
