There is no lack of topics with regard to gaming. Under the umbrella of sports betting, is the development of a regulatory framework, the use of mobile for Tribes, State legislation and Tribal compacts. Fantasy sports will look to grow their position post-PASPA. Will the SCOTUS decision pave the way? The administration has a new Assistant Secretary at Interior and the NIGC could be facing a leadership change-what will these changes in the Administration mean for Indian country? Yet with all that hangs in the balance, will there be movement on the Hill or will the action primarily come at the State level? At the table and driving the discussion is the strategic work of these seasoned panelists.
