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 12

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.
