U.S. Congress to discuss status of Internet gambling

Proof that the U.S. Congress is not completely ignoring Internet gambling will come on Tuesday, Dec. 10, when the subject will be discussed by the Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade.
In an internal memo circulated among members of the subcommittee, the purpose of the hearing was to examine the status of Internet gaming in the entire country.
Also, the memo indicated, there will be further discussion of the Internet subject with a review of the bill proposed by Texas Rep. Joe Barton, which has been languishing since its introduction.
Among the speakers will be John Pappas of the Poker Players Alliance, Geoff Freeman, president and CEO of the American Gaming Association (AGA); Andrew Abboud, representing Sheldon Adelson’s anti-Internet coalition, and Les Bernal of the Stop Predatory Gambling group.
Dr. Rachel Volberg of the University of Mass.-Amherst will examine the technology side while Professor Kurt Eggert will look at consumer protections.
