The junkie defense

The Planning Commission now says Philadelphia can't live without casino revenues (that is, has relied on them in designing its five-year budget plan) and thus can't afford to delay construction [more here]. Today, Sugarhouse, but it sounds like they'll move quickly on Foxwoods, too, no matter what Council thinks it's up to. Yet to be seen: will Council grab onto this report as the cover it needs to sign off on casinos (and toss the hot potato to somebody else), or will those who've said they oppose the current plans continue to foment resistance and delay?
