Good morning. I am pleased to be here today as a representative of the commercial gaming industry.
I’m David Stewart, counsel at the Washington, D.C. Office of Ropes & Gray, where I have practiced law since 1989. It has been my pleasure over nearly two decades to work with the American Gaming Association and its member companies on responsible gaming issues.
I have been asked today to address the evolution of responsible gaming, the origins of the AGA’s Code of Conduct for Responsible Gaming, and the industry’s perspective on responsible gaming governmental regulation.
