One way or another Minister of Budgets, Eric Woerth promised that the games market will be “open” before the FIFA World Cup, which begins June 11, 2010. There’s political will, even if we see that deadlines are tight!
The French law was presented to the Committee on Finance of the Senate, where the point is made before a final debate and of course the ensuing vote, scheduled for February. Delays were they related to a lack of political will?
Two points that make the difference, if the Assembly first adopted in the state without any change to the text, it will be almond in February by the Senate, which will allow the law narrowly to enter into force before June Failing that things are going well Eric Woerth will have cause to bring a part of the law on the open market. For this it will make a decree that will only sites paris athletes to participate and record on the Paris Mondial pending the final entry into force of the law!
“Before June 2010 and the opening World Cup soccer, some operators will be licensed and operate their business legally … The fact remains that the timing is actually stretched” said Eric Woerth, the author of the text original legislation. The budget minister also admits that “the Government has not considered the situation where the bill is not passed in time for the World Cup football.
Eventually the situation remains unclear concerning the effective implementation of legislation. The chairman of the Finance Committee of the Senate, Jean Arthuis in turn confirm that ARJEL is highly constrained due to a legislative timetable that allows for even estimate the final adoption of the text …. Before the month of April!
