Meeting Notification: MGC to hold public meeting on August 4, 2022; Conference Call Available
WHO: Members of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission including Chair Cathy Judd-Stein and Commissioners Brad Hill, Eileen O’Brien and Nakisha Skinner
WHAT: The Massachusetts Gaming Commission will hold public meeting #386 on Thursday, August 4, 2022.
The MGC is reviewing the sports wagering bill that was passed by the legislature on August 1, 2022. As all proposed legislation over the course of this session has designated the Commission as regulator of a potential emerging sports wagering industry, staff have been diligently preparing should such proposed legislation become law.
After the meeting is called to order, Executive Director Karen Wells will provide the Commission with an Administrative Update.
Following that, the Commission will then discuss Preparations for Matters Related to Sports Wagering Legislation Pending Before the Governor. Those preparations will be broken down into four general categories, two of which will precede votes by the Commission:
- Adoption of Revised Organizational Chart and Chief of Sports Wagering Position (vote anticipated)
- Review of Draft Licensing Application Outline (vote anticipated)
- Overview of Regulatory Process and Timeline
- Overview of Plan for Investigatory Process
Commissioner Updates are set to follow and will center on a Plan for Roundtables with Licensees and Stakeholders.
There is also time reserved at the end of the meeting for matters the Chair did not reasonably anticipate at the time of posting.
