Panel Discussion: Alternative Facts: Roundtable on Regulatory Issues
On March 20, exactly two months will have passed since Inauguration Day. There will be a lot to discuss as to the direction of federal actions as re internet gambling and states’ rights to determine regulatory and taxation policy. And where the rubber-hits-the-road: How can government-gaming as an industry fight back against the countless Alternative Facts (e.g. DFS and skill-based gaming are not gambling, legalize and tax commercial operators is a good alternative to government-lottery for channeling economic benefit to society/good causes and protecting the consumer in the games-of-chance sector, iLottery cannibalizes land-based sales, etc.)? How can Lottery combat special interests which are influencing the media and legislators at federal and state levels to shape the regulatory dialogue with fake news?
