Experts in Indian gaming will examine how changes in technology will affect tribal operators across the United States at the Winter Meeting of the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States (NCLGS), December 12-14 at the Hyatt Regency Austin.
The Committee on Indian Gaming will present Finding a Level Playing Field in the Digital Future, co-chaired by Representative Georgene Louis, New Mexico, and Representative Kevin Ryan, Connecticut. They will hear from the following experts:
  • Derril B. Jordan, Partner, Peebles Kidder Bergin & Robinson LLP
  • Matthew Morgan, Chairman, Oklahoma Indian Gaming Association
