    “Good morning Kurt, legislation will be introduced and moved into committees in the next coming days. We’re ensuring all consumer protections are in place before it’s finalized.”

    I would guess they are working on it behind the scenes to finalize a bill. Hopefully the announce it soon (later this week?), and vote on it shortly after.

    If NY can get legislation finalized before MLB All Star break,that would be awesome.

    “Pretlow said he expects the Assembly bill will not be introduced in time to have it be brought for a vote at next week’s meeting of the committee he chairs, but said it’s likely the measure will be on the panel’s agenda on June 1 or June 2.
    The two lawmakers are rushing to get the measure through before the 2016 session ends June 16.”

    This is NYS do they ever get anything done before the session ends? It’ll be another session before Uber Bill gets introduced. I’m hopeful but cautious

  • noddy

    Can someone explain what this bill will do for NY players? I am completely out of the loop

    The main thing the bill should do is let NY’ers play again with all the other players in states that have DFS….the specific details like taxing, protections etc will be a mystery probably until early June IF it officially emerges from the 2 committees as expected. They only have until June 16th to pass the bill and it will all begin to happen very quickly so I guess it’s time to be cautiously optimistic.

  • YeahYou

    June 16 is the next pga millionaire maker. Coincidence? I think not.

  • tysim19

    27 days… If anyone knows anything about Albany politics, optimism here is unwarranted

    sounds a lot like in PA where the casinos have to get their piece of the action

    Maybe the idea here is to have a casino partner with a smaller site and have their online portal through their site but not force FD and DK into such partnerships. Then again we have to play the mental gymnastics of gambling or not gambling
