HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board posted on its web site today the Local Impact Reports for each of the six applicants for Philadelphia's second casino license.
In addition to the Local Impact Reports, the Board also posted an Ownership Structure report to list the proposed ownership for each of the Philadelphia applicants, along with a list of Registered Professional Representatives, such as attorneys and lobbyists, for each applicant.
