Philadelphia, Pa. — Four Pennsylvania lawmakers are calling on state gaming regulators to revoke Foxwoods' license to build a slots parlor in Philadelphia.

Two Democratic and two Republican legislators say time has run out for the troubled project.

Foxwoods told the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board it could not meet a Tuesday deadline to submit architectural and artist renderings of its planned casino.

The lawmakers say Foxwoods has gotten preferential treatment. They say it's time for the state to award the license to someone else.

Of 11 major slots licensees, Foxwoods is the only one not open or under construction.
