Gov. Rendell signs Pa. table games bill
HARRISBURG, Pa. - January 7, 2010 -- Gov. Ed Rendell's signature is on the new law legalizing table games at Pennsylvania's slots casinos.
The governor signed the bill in private Thursday, saying he had mixed feelings about it, then talked about it to reporters at a news conference.
The new law is designed to generate millions in license fees to close a gap in the current year's budget, and produce revenues for state and local governments in future years.
Table games include poker, blackjack and roulette.
Regulators say it'll be at least six months before table games are up and running.
