Michigan Gaming Control Board Hold Public Hearing And Submits The Igaming Rules For Review

Article by : Helen Oct 1, 2020

On 24 September, the Michigan Gaming Control Board held a meeting to review sports betting regulations for the country, after a virtual public hearing on the rules.

MGCB executive director Richard Kalm said, “The Michigan Gaming Control Board appreciates the feedback provided by stakeholders and the public on proposed rules for internet gaming and internet sports betting,” he continued and said, “Today, our agency completed a key step in the rulemaking process by holding a public hearing on the two sets of proposed rules.”

Murley responded, “There are a series of licenses that have to be issued”. “It would be not only the operator, but also the platform provider, and the law does say there can be up to two brands under the Lawful Internet Gaming Act — one for poker and one for general internet gaming. So a lot of that will depend on what the operators and platform providers want and how quickly the licensing application materials are turned in, reviewed, and approved.”

The feedback on the regulations will be submitted to the Michigan Office of Administrative Hearings and Rules and the Legislative Service Bureau for the final review. The board will look at the feedback from the stakeholders and the general public, consider some comments, and make changes where necessary in the next 40 days. After, the regulator is expected to submit the final review to Michigan Legislature’s Joint Committee on Administrative Rules in October. It will then take up to 25 days or at least 15 days before these rules become effective unless the period is waived.
