UPDATE: Pa. House Passes Gambling Bill

Measure would allow for-profit bars and taverns to offer small games of chance.

HARRISBURG - The house passed its version of new gambling legislation Wednesday afternoon.

It would allow for-profit bars and taverns to sell small games of chance-- like pull tabs and raffles. Businesses would get to keep 40 percent of the proceeds, the other 60 percent would go to the state.

Currently, only non-profits like VFWs can sell the ticket games.

The bill now goes back to the senate where it is expected to pass. It would become law with Gov. Corbett's signature.
