HARRISBURG — Clubs and fraternal groups that run small games of chance will have another year to file onerous financial reports and some lawmakers plan to use the time to repeal or fix the law they approved last year.

The Department of Revenue said the Feb. 1 deadline for the organizations to file annual reports will move to Feb. 1, 2014, said spokeswoman Elizabeth Brassell. The Department of Revenue, an agency under Gov. Tom Corbett, is designated to collect and house the reports.

Some in the General Assembly want to change the law because many clubs view the extensive bookkeeping and new financial reporting requirements as a threat to their existence, and they don‘t consider the higher prize limits in the law a fair tradeoff.
