Casino Referendum

March 15, 2007

The Casino referendum just passed in City Council by a unanimous vote of 17 to 3.  The voters of Philadelphia will be able to decide whether to amend the City Charter to prohibit City Council from issuing a permit to license gaming within 1500 feet of a residential area.

 This is a huge victory for the anti casino movement on the heels of last week’s disappointing ruling that struck the anti casino petition for alleged technical deficiencies.
