Kauffman Calls for Real Reform at Gaming Control Board
4/23/2009
With governor on board for change, only Democrats stand in the way
 
Following the announcement of Chairman Mary Colins stepping down from the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, Gov. Ed Rendell has expressed interest in continued changes at the board. The following is a statement from Rep. Rob Kauffman (R-Cumberland/Franklin) on the recent announcements:
 
“We have continued to encounter problems with the gaming board appointees and the way they regulate and spend money. Fortunately, I think the administration has finally heard our continued calls for a fresh start and the governor is beginning to express an interest in making real reform a reality at the board.
 
“However, more progress still needs to be made if the governor is sincere in his suggestion that Colins’ replacement as the new gaming board chairman be his chief of staff, Greg Fajt. This would not be the new blood and fresh start we need. In fact, it would just be more cronyism.
 
“Only through real and significant change can we bring integrity to the gaming industry. I am hopeful that now that the governor has begun to see the light and understand the need for true reform, that House Democrats will follow suit and not continue to stand in the way of progress.”
