merican Gaming Association (AGA) President and CEO Bill Miller will hold an industry briefing on Thursday, January 28 at 11:30 a.m. ET to preview the year ahead in gaming, discuss the current policy environment for gaming in Washington, and outline AGA priorities to accelerate the industry’s recovery.
Directly following the briefing, Miller will hold a press call at 12:00 p.m. ET to answer questions from the media, according to a statement from the association.
Last month, Miller welcomed the recent COVID-19 relief measures passed by the US Congress as part of bipartisan legislation, but called for additional measures to help the gaming industry amid the economic challenges brought on by the pandemic. "While this much-needed aid is a significant step, it is imperative that the next Congress act swiftly on additional measures to address the economic challenges facing our nation and our industry," Miller said then
"The AGA looks forward to working with the Biden administration and 117th Congress in the new year to provide tax relief that will save gaming jobs and alleviate costs, liability protections that advance responsible reopening, incentives for reviving travel and tourism, and essential support for tribal nations,” he added, referring to the elected President of the United States Joe Biden, who took office last week.
