The Pennsylvania Harness Racing Commission this week granted Philadelphia-based Endeka Entertainment another 45 days to produce plans for a harness racing track and casino in Lawrence County.

A letter Monday from commission executive secretary George Crawford gave Endeka until March 14 to provide documentation of a financial commitment to building the $170 million racetrack facility, a management agreement for the facility and a completed application for a slot machine license.

Crawford's letter noted that Endeka made progress in meeting conditions the commission originally set in October. It was the second extension the commission granted.
