Washington D.C.'s Lottery Commission has once again rescheduled meetings that are to give the public a chance to air questions or concerns about the city's online gambling law.

The hearings are now scheduled to be held in each of the city's eight wards between October 13th and November 17th.

Commenting on the meetings, D.C. Lottery and Charitable Games Board Executive Director Buddy Roogow said, “I look forward to kicking off the community meetings and garnering input from District residents on the most beneficial approach to shaping an iGaming program for the District.

"Our goal is to educate residents, constituents, and stake holders alike on what internet gaming is, what it isn’t, and highlight the potential benefits this new gaming platform may have in the District of Columbia. I want to ensure that residents have the appropriate information they need to make a well informed decision on the impact of internet gaming in the District and in their communities.”
