H.R.2267 Update: Markup Scheduled
July 23, 2021
H.R.2267, Congressman Barney Frank’s pro-online gambling legislation, has seemingly been in the news in way or another since the original announcement of it’s most recent hearing got out last week- a hearing which took place on Wednesday- and today was no exception, with notice of an H.R.2267 official markup now making headlines.

H.R.2267, also known as the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection and Enforcement Act, has been jumping through different legislative hoops since it was first introduced by Frank mid-2009 and a markup- the next step where the bill is amended and formalized- has been a highly anticipated step in that journey for much of that time. 

This markup stage was assumed imminent ever since Wednesday’s hearing, thanks to a small comment by Representative John Campbell that suggested it may happen in his words "presumably next week," but full details had not been released until today, when the markup for H.R.2267 appeared on the official House Committee on Financial Services agenda for this coming Tuesday, at 10 am (ET).
