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.

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.
