YEh, the FEd study done in 2000 stated that , fir every dollar a casino take in, WE will pay out 3 to 5 doillars in crime, addiction etc.
Mame, you are correct, I DID include that line re , the existence of CAsinos and their percieved "Need". Our state govt approved 5 casinos within PA, with the idea that most casinos draw their primary money from a population within an hour of the casino. (This made sewnse to the legislature) Gettysburg fit in some blank hole in a "casino density" map of Pa.
The casino hearings have been publicized these last few days , I was watching PCN (Pa Cable Network) tv on the internet and the opponents to the G'burg plan have been almost unanimous.
