The Poker Players Alliance has just sent out notice of a poker legalization hearing in Charleston and Greenville, SC this month.
From the e-mail:
Playing poker in the privacy of your own home is a crime in South Carolina thanks to a ridiculous outdated state law signed 209 years ago. Senate President Pro Tem Glenn McConnell will be holding two public hearings to discuss S535 a bill that would legalize home poker games and also expand charity gaming (including charity poker tournaments) in the state. The first public hearing will be March 23rd in North Charleston City Hall and the second on March 30th in the Greenville County Council Chambers, both start at 5:30pm.
I plan to attend the March 30 hearing in Greenville. The PPA is looking for a large turn-out of pro-poker folks.
Monday, March 30th
Greenville County Council Chambers
301 University Ridge
Greenville, SC 29601
I'll likely have more on the subject in the coming days. In the meantime, if you'd like to RSVP for the hearing, you can do so HERE.
