Internet casino bill hearing date postponed
April 14, 2010, 1:07 pm (7 years ago)
The Congressional hearing for Barney Frank's bill asking for legalize regulated Internet casinos and online gambling has been delayed. The hearing previous to the House Financial Services Committee what was supposed to take place on Friday, April 16th is going to be scheduled on a later time and date.
Apparently, Barney Frank, committee chairman, has a clash which forces an alteration of the hearing time. The rescheduled date is yet to be announced.
The measure introduced by Frank was to regulate licensing, taxation, and mistakes of online casinos and Internet poker. However, the bill has missed some potential dates for progression, as Congressional put health care and financial reform its first priority.
