SAN DIEGO (CNS) - The three-day winter meeting of the National Council of Legislators from Gaming States will bring nearly four dozen legislators from 20 states to San Diego Friday to discuss the state of the gaming industry and its economic impacts.

The three-day meeting at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina is open to the public, and will be attended by state legislators, gaming operators, suppliers, sports executives, attorneys, analysts, regulators and other public officials with stakes in legalized gambling.

The winter meeting will include legislative-chaired sessions on tribal and commercial casinos, responsible gaming, and more; master classes on sports betting and tribal-state compacting, and a tour of the Pechanga Resort Casino in Temecula.

``The participation and attendance of legislators from across the country underscores the importance of the NCLGS semiannual meetings as the only gaming conferences where the legislative decision-makers learn from industry leaders and from each other," said NCLGS President William P. Coley, an Ohio state senator.
