Public hearing underway for 2nd Philly casino
PHILADELPHIA - April 11, 2013 -- A second round of public hearings on applications for Philadelphia's second casino license is underway.
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board is holding the hearings on Thursday and Friday. They began at 9 a.m. Thursday at the Pennsylvania Convention Center and run until 9 p.m. The hearing will continue Friday.
Gaming board officials say all slots for speakers have been reserved and that anyone who hasn't signed up will likely have to wait until a third hearing, May 8.
Six groups are vying for the second casino license slotted for the city under the state's gaming law. The first, Sugarhouse Casino, has been up and running since September 2010.
The state's first casino opened in 2006 and it now has 11 casinos statewide.
