    Internet Gambling Bill Introduced in Pennsylvania

    Internet Gambling Bill Introduced in Pennsylvania

    Pennsylvania State Representative Tina Davis introduced a bill to legislative committee on Monday that would legalize online gambling within the commonwealth.

    Spearheaded by Davis, House Bill 1235 is co-sponsored by eleven other Pennsylvania legislators including Thomas Caltagirone, Rosita Youngblood, Dom Costa, William Kortz, Vanessa Lowery Brown, RoseMarie Swanger, Mark Cohen, Ed Neilson, George Dunbar, John Galloway and John Sabatina.

    If approved by the House Gaming Oversight Committee, it will then be heard and voted on by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives.

    For states that have gaming, it would be a tremendous victory for the future. However, I live in Tennessee and I can almost say with pure certainty that we will Never have a bill pass here for Internet Poker...Its against the states founding principles of prohibiting any form of gaming in which "luck is involved" and state representatives are so close minded that it will never change. Yet Tennessee has the "lottery"(State lotto, Powerball and Mega Millions) in which people spend half their paycheck or more each week buying tickets and cheap scratch off tickets only to lose repeatedly...Isn't the lottery 100% Pure LUCK?? This country makes me laugh!!

    This would be great news if passed. It has all started with Jersey and Nevada, and seems to overflow in others such as PA. It's like the snowball effect, and hopefully soon the entire nation.

    My assumption is that it would be like the medical marijuana laws are here in Oregon. The feds will not observe the precedent, so it really does nothing to help with international issues like internet gambling. However these types of conflicts offer new models to present themselves, much like the marijuana laws here have spawned speak-easy type weedshops. So you may end up being on the forefront of a new poker frontier.

    Its just a matter of time til we can play against the euro donks again... i think the US is just looking for a way to regulate the flow of money so they can tax winnings and avoid money laundering fraud
