• Hope for Federal Online Gambling Law?

    21 February 2011

    For all of those that think the recent elections may have destroyed any hope of a federal government law regulating online gambling may have to rethink their position if rumors become a reality later this year. Though it may come as a surprise what side this bill may be coming from, who may introduce it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise.

    California Republican Representative John Campbell is reportedly ready to introduce a bill later this year in congress that would legalize and regulate the online gambling industry in the United States. Rep. Campbell is a member of the House Committee on Financial Services and became a co-sponsor of the Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement that Barney Frank had introduced.

    Rep. Campbell was very active in getting this online gambling regulation passed through the committee, introducing a couple amendments that were passed but the bill never made it to the Congressional floor for vote. Most of the amendments Rep. Campbell brought up and got passed were aimed at protecting minors from getting access to the online gambling sites and making sure sites operated within the rules being set forth.

    So there is another light heading towards the supporters of online gambling, unusually it is coming from the other side of the tunnel. Hopefully this time we can avoid getting run over… again.
