HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania – (PRESS RELEASE) -- State Sen. Robert M. "Tommy"

Sen. Tomlinson, who engaged in a decade-long fight to authorize slot
machines at racetracks, was instrumental in crafting and passing Act 71, which

Philadelphia Park.

experts, land-use and zoning experts, as well as the Keynote Luncheon and
Exhibition Area.
