|Members of the US National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS) will be meeting for their annual debate in Las Vegas this month, and among the host of controversial topics up for discussion is an analysis of the effects of the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA).|
According to Reports in Interactive Gaming News Steven Geller, President of the NCLGS clarified that although the NCLGS is not authorised to take state policy positions the annual meeting will provide an opportunity to challenge various assumptions on the rights and wrongs of the act.
‘In general we're information only, by which I mean we want to let our members know what the current state of the law is coming down the pike,’ he said. ‘Again, we do have an established position on Internet gambling and I think it's the only type of gambling we've taken any position on. Depending on what we hear, we may reevaluate our position.’
