Look What Convention Is Coming to Portland In 2010


Who says Portland needs to gamble on a convention center hotel to land conventions?

We learned this morning from Poker News Daily that the National Council on Problem Gambling is coming to town next June 10-12. This year's convention in Indianapolis drew 350 people, most of whom are counselors.

And we also learn there's another Oregon connection to the issues facing the council. U.S. Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) is listed as a co-sponsor of HR 2268, the Internet Gambling Regulation and Tax Enforcement Act — which would impose a license fee on Internet gambling operators.
