Internal committee memo outlines online gaming hearing Tuesday

Why would anyone in Nevada care about a hearing Tuesday before the Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing, and Trade?

Because the subject matter is "The State of Online Gaming."

An internal House Energy panel memo says this will come up:

 Is Federal legislation necessary to address the developing patchwork of State regulations? 
 How effective is enforcement of remote gaming in jurisdictions that have legalized it? 
How are States preparing to deal with the issue?

 What consumer protections exist for online gaming? 
 How should the differences between various forms of online gaming – e.g., poker vs. 
table games – affect how they are regulated?
