The Legal Division is then set to hold discussions on three topics: a High Card Flush Pay Table Rules Revision, the Public Records Request Policy, Procedure and Technology, and an update on the Broadway Development Decision. The first two matters referenced are likely to precede votes by the Commission.
Executive Director Wells will be joined by other Commission officials in the following portion of the meeting where a Regulation Review Update will take place.
Commissioner Updates are set to follow, rounding out the public portion of the open meeting with a Procedural Discussion Regarding Statutory Positions and Elections of Secretary and Treasurer, along with a Legislative Update regarding Chapter 22 of the Acts of 2022 (Remote Public Meetings).
