Canceled Alert! Gettysburg not under new Casino threat! the moment.

[Note: An early version of this post contained erroneous information which has now been removed.]

The Pennsylvania Gambling Commission will announce today that it will be taking applications for the unused dedicated casino license from the City of Philadelphia during the next three months.  This is according to Harrisburg Online today.

We had anticipated that this license would be auctioned off statewide, posing a potential threat to the Gettysburg Battlefield once again.  For now that is not the case.  

Nevertheless, it remains a threat, as posted in our previous entry [Casino Redux?].  

Once again we wish to rouse our readership to begin pressing their State Senators and Representatives to quickly pass House Bill 2082, which would protect not only Gettysburg Battlefield, but also the Flight 93 Crash Site Memorial north of Somerset, Pennsylvania.  The bill would provide a ten mile buffer around each of these sites.  Push your legislators to get that bill out of committee immediately and get it passed. 

Check often with the No Casino Gettysburg Network website for updates and details, and ways to contact your Pennsylvania State Assembly members.

“Be steadfast in your anger, be sure in your convictions, be moved by the right and certainty that abuse of power must be defeated at every turn; uphold Liberty as the just reward of a watchful people, and let not those who have infringed upon that Liberty steal it away from you. Never loosen your grip on Liberty!" -- GettysBLOG
