Public hearing on DC's gambling law this week

The D.C. Council's finance committee will hold a pubic hearing Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the Wilson building on its new Internet and electronic casino law.

This law, which allows gambling over the Internet as well as via electronic casinos, in bars, hotels and restaurants was approved in December without an hearing or much debate. It was approved as a rider on a budget bill.
