New Online Poker Gambling Bill in USA Senate

August 06, 2009

New Jersey Democrat Robert Menendez has just brought in into the USA Senate a brand new part of bill arranged to legalize and regulate online poker.

"To amend title 31, USA Code, to provide for the licensing by the Secretary of the Treasury of online poker and other games that are predominantly of skill, to provide for costumer protections on the Internet, to enforce the tax code, and for other purposes," the bill begins.

The bill would establish a new legal regulatory foundation for online poker in the USA, and also put in place certain customer protections such as age restrictions. Officially entitled S.8309, the online Poker and Games of Skill Regulation, costumers Protection, and Enforcement Act, it was brought in today.

No matter what success this bill meets with, it represents another huge milestone in the nationwide struggle to reclassify poker from casino gambling to a game of skill. This movement seeks to enable online poker to be not only legalized but also change the way it is regarded in popular culture.

That movement has gained a lot of transaction over the past year, with smaller court victories in states such as Colorado, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina, and with Representative Barney Frank’s recent efforts to legalize and regulate certain sectors of online casino gambling with his own bill (which is separate from this bill).

Home to the original USA gaming resort destination, Atlantic City, New Jersey has long had its own internal struggles regarding the legality of gaming, and has recently clashed with the federal government on this basis. So it makes sense that the author of this new bill is is from New Jersey — and a Democrat, the party that is apparently more open to the idea of fully legalized online casino gambling. (Although it technically has bipartisan support, the vast majority of supporters of Barney Frank’s recent pro-online casino gambling efforts have been Democrats.)

Good Luck
