The Senate Indian Affairs Committee held a hearing to examine the potential impact of Internet gaming regulation on Indian tribal interests on Thursday, November 17th. PPA Chairman former Sen. D’Amato testified for PPA, accompanied by PPA Executive Director John Pappas.
It is my opinion that our chairman stole the show, but do not take just my word for it, Please check out the hearing for yourself (click here to watch).
The Friday U.S. House Subcommittee for Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade hearing was excellent for poker as well. Please click here for more on this hearing, and please check out PPA’s memo to the subcommittee (linked below) to read our response regarding bot detection technology, how sites handle Internet service disruptions, and discussion of other issues important to the poker community.
These hearings are evidence of the outstanding work the poker community has done to ensure that our elected representatives hear from us. I again thank everyone for taking the steps necessary to ensure our lawmakers understand that we poker enthusiasts will not back down and will not simply go away!
