News Bite: DC Schedule Public Meetings

The District of Columbia will finally hold public meetings to address legislation legalising online poker. The meetings, initially scheduled for the summer, will run from October 13 to November 17.

It’s been a slow process in Washington since becoming the first jurisdiction in the United States to legalise online poker in April. Plans to roll out games were delayed in both August and September.

D.C. Lottery Director Buddy Roogow said: “[The meetings will] educate residents, constituents, and stake holders alike on what Internet gaming is and what it isn’t. Residents will get all of the facts and information they need to make a well informed decision on the impact of Internet gaming in the District and in their communities.”
