Confirmed speakers as of this article include:
California currently has two active bills seeking to regulate online poker. Read an excellent overview of the two bills from Chris Krafcik of GamblingCompliance.com here.
The presence of Chairman Macarro and Chairman Martin raises the question of whether the ongoing conflict over so-called “bad actor” provisions in California’s bills to regulated online poker will take center stage at the conference.
The topic dominated a recent Assembly hearing on online poker.
Macarro and a wide-ranging coalition of tribes support the inclusion of such clauses. Martin, along with Morongo’s cardroom allies, are pushing for the removal of bad actor language that would prohibit the entry of their recently-announced partner PokerStars.
