Pennsylvania House dares Senate to reject online gambling, DFS bill

Pennsylvania’s House of Representatives has once again approved online gambling and daily fantasy sports legislation but the odds appear stacked against the Senate following suit.

Pennsylvania’s House convened a special session on Thursday in an attempt to finish some unfinished business that didn’t get covered on Wednesday, which was supposed to be their last official day of work before the November election.

Among the items on their to-do list was the quick-fix bill the Senate passed on Tuesday to temporarily fill the funding gap created in September when the state Supreme Court struck down a local share slots tax law as unconstitutional.

The House approved their HB 1887 bill by a respectable margin (110-71) on Thursday, but not before amending it to include a permanent fix to the local share tax issue, as well as the online gambling, DFS and airport mobile gaming language in the HB 2150 bill the House approved in June.
