July 27 date scheduled
The House Financial Services Committee announced late Thursday that HR 2267, the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act, will be marked-up on Tuesday, July 27th.
The Safe and Secure Internet Gambling Initiative (SSIGI)'s spokesman Michael Waxman commented: “Chairman Frank is clearly moving to get his bill advanced before Congress leaves town for their summer recess. Most importantly, the markup shows a commitment by chairman Frank to move forward and his colleagues to address this issue.”
Tuesday will be a busy day for the Committee; besides HR2267 there are five other bills on the agenda for discussion, including HR 5814 (Public Housing Reinvestment and Tenant Protection Act), HR 4868 (Housing Preservation and Tenant Protection Act), HR 3421 (Medical Debt Relief Act), HR 4790 (Shareholder Protection Act), and HR 5823 (United States Covered Bond Act).
This is the first set of mark-ups to be placed on the Committee’s agenda since May.
