As Pennsylvania’s tax revenues from casinos plateau, some are saying Internet gambling should be legalized in the state. Do you agree?

Yes. If people are willing to spend money, I’m all for our state collecting additional taxes.
No. We’re already seeing casino tax revenue dropping. This would just saturate the market even further.
