Launch of DC Online Poker Venture May be Delayed

(Associated Press ) - The District of Columbia Council might delay the launch of the nation's first government-run online gambling venture.

Council member Jack Evans said at a committee hearing Wednesday that the Sept. 8 launch date wouldn't give Washington residents enough opportunity to object if they don't like the idea of local businesses becoming gambling hubs.

"I don't believe there's enough time to notify the residents and get feedback as to whether they want this thing in their neighborhoods," Evans said.
