The governor has signed a controversial bill that allows casino-like gambling, online.

Pennsylvania's governor says he hopes the move will be the final fix to patch the state's 2 billion dollar budget shortfall.

Wolf can now direct funds for public school, university and human services obligations.

The measure allows gambling parlors in airports and current casinos to apply to operate satellite gambling dens.

Pro-family groups fear an uptick in gambling addiction in what's already the nation's second-largest commercial casino state.
