Thanks to RG members for taking the time to write letters of support to Assembly Member Gray in support of his DFS bill.

    Kudos to DFSPA for the fine work on behalf of players! We most definitely have supporters here in the state, notably Assembly Member Gray; and, this vote to move the bill onward is a fabulous step! I think we still have worries over next steps with the potential for Kamala Harris to weigh in regarding current legality, but this move certainly will help politically (particularly with a fellow Democrat leading way and offsetting dissenting voice from Levine). If folks could give Gray a bump on Twitter (only one like — me on his tweet about this), that would be great too:


    You were an invaluable part of the team that helped make this happen. Can’t thank you enough for taking the time to drive to Sacramento and deliver powerful testimony on behalf of players!

    Prior to the hearing, Gray filed a number of amendments to his bill, including bans on commingling player funds with operating capital, some mild advertising restrictions, prohibitions on DFS employees playing on other sites and tagging high-volume players with a scarlet letter so fish know when they’re being stalked. But Gray’s bill still hasn’t specified what the state will seek in terms of license fees or taxes.

    Cooley’s primary concern was what he called “the knucklehead angle,” i.e. the likelihood of fish being preyed upon by DFS sharks. Cooley praised Gray’s amendments, including the establishment of ring-fenced games in which sharks couldn’t participate, as addressing many of these concerns. But he still worried that “we should not aid and abet the fool and his money soon being parted.”
