• HR226 Gets Another Co-Sponsor in Congressman John Campbell

    06 August 2010


    Most are hailing the passing of HR 2267, The Internet Gambling Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act last week as a victory for getting some kind of regulation for online gambling in the U.S. The next step is getting the consideration of the full House of Representatives.

    Today that next step got more support in the way of Congressman John Campbell (R-CA) who added his name to the growing list of co-sponsors to the bill that now total 70. In last week’s hearing Rep. Campbell was a active and vocal contributor. There were several amendments voting on that day a two directly involved the Congressman.

    Most of Congressman Campbell’s amendments involved protecting those that play as well as minors. Both of his amendments passed by voice vote.

    Amendment #7 – Rep. John Campbell (R–Cal.) – A multi-part amendment stating a) all facilities of internet gaming firms must be located in the U.S., b) States and tribes must have parallel authority, c) Bettors must be at least 21-years old, d) Age and residence of customers must be verified, e) Game odds must be posted online, f) Both legal and illegal sites must be identified by the Treasury so that financial institutions can properly allow/block transactions, g) Owners must meet licensing requirements, h) Customers must be able to self-impose loss limits.

    Amendment #9 – Rep. John Campbell (R–Cal.) – Sites that target minors in their advertising will be stripped of their licenses.

    Safe and Secure Internet Gambling Initiative spokesperson Michael Waxman said, “It was good to see some new members supporting HR 2267, including Congressman Campbell, which further illustrates that this is a bipartisan bill.”

    Adding another sponsor just adds to the steam behind getting this bill voted on by the time Congress adjourns this year on Oct. 8th. Though there is great excitement for adding Rep. Campbell’s name to the co-sponsors, most believe that getting some sort or resolution this year is still a long shot.
