State Sen. Gene Yaw recently sent a memo to fellow lawmakers alerting them to upcoming legislation he plans to release outlining a law tightening regulations on skill games. Sen. Yaw believes the new legislation could generate $300 million in new taxable revenue for the state.
Yaw’s legislation hopes to streamline and clean up the skill games market. With the top skill games manufacturer, Pace-O-Matic, residing in Yaw’s district, the bill hopes to solidify jobs and increase revenue for the state.
While PA skill games have won several legal battles against Pennsylvania’s gaming industry in recent months, Sen. Yaw’s legislation could place the entire skill games industry on solid footing moving forward.
