Harrisburg, PA

I called Gib Armstrong's office last month and his aide informed me that the reason why Armstrong won't release it yet alone approve it is because he's opposed to gambling! His aide suggested I contact all the members on the Senate Appropriations Committee to force Armstrong's hand to kick the bill out onto the floor for voting. Armstrong doesn't care because this is his last term.

I wonder if he has invested his maximum 1% in the gambling, etc. law?

By the way that bill was illegal in that state legislators were permitted to invest 1%. That was a clear violation of the Constitution and House/Senate Rules in which no state legislator is permitted to vote on any bill that they will personally benefit from in any manner, especially a monetary benefit!

If constituents were to check the campaign finance reports filed at the state elections office for the past several years, they will notice that state legislators, not all but a good many of them accepted contributions from the horse racing industry! It's all public record!
