DFS is not only under the microscope, but also the existence of the game is being threatened by many politicians and special interests across a number of states. I think most agree this is a very pivotal time for the future of the industry and I think now is the time we as players let our voice be heard by those people who will be making some of those decisions.
I want this thread to serve as a spot for players to be able find the names, emails, etc…of many of the people who will be shaping the future of this industry on State by State basis. I’ll try and keep this updated the best I can, so the more people who can give feedback the better. Whether it’s a just a name/email or talking points in a letter….anything is helpful. I’m far from an expert in regards to who exactly we need to reach out to, so those who are more informed please add to the discussion.
Big shout out to Justin Van Zuiden (STLCardinals84) for getting the ball rolling on Twitter this afternoon.

List of the specific members on the gaming oversight committee who will be making the initial votes this Wednesday.
Update from @LSRDustin: Some advice in PA, you should be writing your state reps or state senators, especially if your rep sits on the gaming committee of either the house or the senate. Probably tough to move the needle with the governor.
