Annie Duke will speak at Wednesday’s 2pm ET House Financial Services Committee hearing on Internet gambling.
Duke, testifying on behalf of the Poker Players Alliance, joins four other panelists, including (copy + paste from the House Financial Services website):
- Mr. Ed Williams, President and Chief Executive Officer, Discovery Federal Credit Union on behalf of the Credit Union National Association
- Mr. Tom Malkasian, Vice Chairman and Director of Strategic Planning, Commerce Casino
- The Honorable Lynn Malerba, Tribal Chairwoman, Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut
- Mr. Michael K. Fagan, Law Enforcement/Anti-Terrorism Consultant
Importantly, there is no markup of the H.R. 2267 bill scheduled. So don’t expect much momentum to shift here. Just another hearing. From every source we’ve spoken with–even among the most optimistic of the bunch–no one believes anything significant is going to happen with H.R. 2267 before the mid-term elections, and we could be in a long, long grind if the Republicans take over the House in November.
Anyway, you can watch the hearings via live web stream at 2pm ET here.
