On ‘The Impact:’ Online fantasy sports games, digital privacy

This week’s edition of “The Impact” looks at online fantasy sports games, which are banned in Washington.

Lawmakers will soon debate whether to lift the ban on all fantasy sports games offering prize money, or just the ones between friends and co-workers. Washington Gambling Commissioner Chris Stearns discusses a new study on fantasy sports being presented to the commission this week.

Plus, details about the state’s new digital privacy guide and what can be done to better protect personal information from hackers. Washington’s Chief Privacy Officer Alex Alben is a guest on the show.

The show will also cover the latest on the Grays Harbor oil export terminals.

“The Impact” airs Wednesday, Nov. 11 at 7 & 10 p.m.
