Games Of Chance Meeting Scheduled

State Rep. Gerald Mullery is encouraging local non-profit organizations to attend a presentation by the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement about the state’s small games of chance law.

The presentation will be held at 6 p. m. Wednesday, July 15 at Greater Nanticoke Area Senior High School, 425 Kosciuszko St., Nanticoke.

“My office has fielded many calls from organizations that rely on small games of chance for fundraising, such as local Little Leagues, scouting organizations and church groups,” said Mullery, D-Newport Township. “I organized this meeting to give them a chance to hear directly from officials with extensive knowledge of the Small Games of Chance Act.”

In 2012, a law made sweeping changes to the Small Games of Chance Act. A law enacted in 2012, and two more enacted in 2013, made further changes to the act.
