Online gambling bill hearing postponed

Online gambling bill hearing postponed

April 13, 2010.

The April 16th House Financial Services Committee hearings on two bills authored by Barney Frank has been postponed indefinitely, according to a spokesman for Frank's office.

The spokesman said that the postponment was due to overscheduling on the chairman's diary. "We had a previously scheduled event in Massachusetts," he said, adding that a new date and time for the Washington hearing would be advised in due course.

In addition to being author of H.R. 2266, Reasonable Prudence in Regulation Act and H.R. 2267, and the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act-Governmental Perspectives, which were due for discussion but not markup, Congressman Frank is chairman of the Committee.
