    With 15 million dollars for the new facility coming from casinos. So much for the money from the casinos being used to cut taxes, etc.

    Sorry, not one dime of public money should be spent on this. Let the owners fork over the money.

    I agree Steve and I have watched the News here. So far it seems the money for tax relief from gambling is a set number that cannot be touched. There is to be another 7 mill/yr to the Arena deal from new gambling facility.:shakehead:

    IMHO the city/county need a real major change in leadership/ direction. Other cities and states are getting major business and our younger workers continue to leave Pittsburgh. Gambling (another tax on the population) is not the answer.
