At the public hearing, the state's gaming board will gather evidence on the renewal of the Category 2 Slot Machine Operator's license for Stadium Casino

T

he Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board will hold a public hearing on Monday, May 6, 2019 to gather evidence, including public comment, on the renewal of the Category 2 Slot Machine Operator's license for Stadium Casino, LLC which is constructing the Live! Casino in Philadelphia.

The hearing will begin at 3:00 p.m. at Penn State at The Navy Yard, 1101 Kitty Hawk Ave., Building 7R, Philadelphia, PA 19112. The deadline for registration to speak at this hearing is noon on Friday, May 3, 2019.

Pursuant to section 1326 of the Pennsylvania Race Horse Development and Gaming Act, all licenses shall be subject to renewal every five years. The renewal application must include an update of the information since its last renewal.

To implement the renewal requirement, the Board utilizes a two-step process:

  1. First, the May 6th public hearing will be held before the Director of the PGCB's Office of Hearings and Appeals for the purpose of receiving documentary evidence, hearing testimony and building a record upon which the Board will base its licensing decision. The hearing record, along with a report from the Director of Hearings and Appeals, will be transmitted to the Board.
  2. The second step is to hold a separate public hearing in Harrisburg at a later date where Stadium Casino, LLC representatives will offer oral arguments and Board members can ask additional questions.

At the renewal hearing, the burden is on the renewal applicant to establish and demonstrate, by clear and convincing evidence, its eligibility and suitability for renewal of the gaming license awarded in November 2014.

Following these proceedings, the Board will then be able to determine whether the licensee remains eligible and suitable consistent with the laws of the Commonwealth and are otherwise qualified to have the license renewed for a five-year period.
