The House Committee on Financial Services announced the markup on Rep. Barney Frank's bill to regulate online gambling will take place on next Tuesday, July 27th.

This decision comes a week after the committee held a hearing on the bill, which our own vinism liveblogged.

From Poker News Daily:

The Safe and Secure Internet Gambling Initiative (SSIGI) broke the news shortly after dinnertime on Thursday. Organization spokesperson Michael Waxman told Poker News Daily that he was pleased to see such quick movement through the powerful House Financial Services Committee: “Chairman Frank is clearly moving to get his bill advanced before Congress leaves town for their summer recess. Most importantly, the markup shows a commitment by Chairman Frank to move forward and his colleagues to address this issue.”

Tuesday’s hearing is on the docket for 10:00am ET and features the markup of six bills including HR 2267. The other five pieces of legislation to be discussed include HR 5814 (Public Housing Reinvestment and Tenant Protection Act), HR 4868 (Housing Preservation and Tenant Protection Act), HR 3421 (Medical Debt Relief Act), HR 4790 (Shareholder Protection Act), and HR 5823 (United States Covered Bond Act). This is the first set of markups to be placed on the Committee’s agenda since May.
