BOSTON, Massachusetts As reported by Bloodhorse: "Lawmakers will tackle the complicated issue of Internet gambling during a two-hour hearing June 2 during a meeting of the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States in Boston.

"NCLGS is currently lining up experts from the public and private sectors to testify on the pros and cons of Internet betting, as well as legal and regulatory concerns. Florida Sen.

"'NCLGS believes that Internet gaming is a states' rights issue, and states should ultimately have final say over its existence in the U.S.,' Geller said in a statement. 'NCLGS is holding the hearing in order to revisit its current position on Internet gaming, initially formed in the late 1990s, and to take into consideration recent relevant activity, including World Trade Organization findings, Department of Justice rules, state initiatives regarding the Internet, and new technology.'..."
