MINNEAPOLIS, April 15, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Building off the record total and legislative attendance at its Winter Meeting three months ago, the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States today posted its agenda for the Summer Meeting, which takes place July 12-14 at the Radisson Blu Downtown in Minneapolis.
The robust agenda for three-day NCLGS Summer Meeting includes six legislative committee hearings that will focus on legal, regulatory, operational aspects related sports betting, lottery and casino (commercial and tribal), plus a keynote from Timothy Wilmott, CEO of Penn National Gaming, North America's largest regional gaming operator.
"With questions surrounding what lotteries may or may not do and so many states in the process of introducing or legalizing sport betting, the Summer Meeting will be the right place to be if you want to learn what is working and not working in each state," said NCLGS President William Coley, a senator from Ohio. "We look forward to the ongoing discussion on these issues and much, much more."
The NCLGS Summer Meeting agenda includes:
Six legislative committee sessions: Casinos, Emerging Forms of Gaming, Indian Gaming, Lotteries, Responsible Gaming, and State-Federal Relations
Keynote Luncheon Address: "The Next Five Years of Gaming," by Timothy Wilmott, CEO, Penn National Gaming, and Chairman, American Gaming Association
