Wolf OKs Expanded Gambling in PA - Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has approved legislation authorizing a major expansion of gambling in what's already the nation's second-largest commercial casino state.  Wolf said Monday he's signed a bill that will make the state the fourth to allow online gambling.  The measure also will allow the state's current 10 casinos to apply for the right to operate satellite casinos and put video gambling terminals inside truck stops. It also would allow gambling parlors in airports.  The gambling legislation aims to produce about $200 million annually from casino license fees and taxes on higher gambling losses.  WFMZ's Bo Koltnow will have more on 69 News at 4 and 6.
