Corrective Amendment to 58 Pa. Code Chapter 491a
[40 Pa.B. 254]
[Saturday, January 9, 2010]
The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has discovered a discrepancy between the agency text of 58 Pa. Code § 491a.5(b)(2)(iv)(A) and (B) and (c) (relating to service by the Board), as deposited with the Legislative Reference Bureau and published at 37 Pa.B. 4520 (August 18, 2007) and the official text currently appearing in the Pennsylvania Code MTS No. 418 (September 2009). When the pages for MTS 418 were prepared, the text of § 491a.5(b)(2)(iv)(A) and (B) and (c) was inadvertently omitted.
Therefore, under 45 Pa.C.S. § 901: The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has deposited with the Legislative Reference Bureau a corrective amendment to 58 Pa. Code § 491a.5(b)(2)(iv)(A) and (B) and (c). The corrective amendment to § 491a.5(b)(2)(iv)(A) and (B) and (c) is effective as of September 5, 2009, the date the defective text was announced in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
The correct version of § 491a.5 is set forth in Annex A.
