DOJ Oversight Hearing

Good news, next Tuesday the House Judiciary Committee will hold a Department of Justice oversight hearing and it is likely Holder will testify. The PPA is already engaging Committee Staff and MoCs about asking questions surrounding Black Friday and regulation of iPoker. The poker community has several friendly lawmakers on the Committee -- mostly on the Democratic side. If you live in the Congressional District of a House Judiciary Committe member link to full list:http://judiciary.house.gov/about/members.html

Please call them an urge them to attend the hearing and ask a question on your behalf. The PPA will be sending a blast to our members who live in these districts as well, but I wanted to share this with the 2+2 community as well.
