Fumo weighs in on gambling

U.S. Senator and local Big Dog Vincent Fumo has suggestions about the way PA handles slots and other gambling.
In a letter to the state gambling control board yesterday, the Philadelphia Democrat recommended that casinos not cash personal and government checks or check advances for gamblers. He also urged the board to require casino applicants to submit a plan to address compulsive gambling when they apply for a license, and casino operators to post gambling treatment information in advertising and at casinos.
It's good to see the addiction problem being addressed, as well as the whole legislation given a closer look.
