Aug 13, 2009

The Poker Players Alliance, the leading U.S. poker advocacy group with more than one million members, commended Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) for promoting the Internet Poker and Games of Skill Regulation, Consumer Protection, and Enforcement Act. The law sets up the essential licensing and regulative structure for the USA to safeguard customers by applying suitable control and oversight to play poker online in addition to other skill games.

"Through our efforts on Capitol Hill during National Poker Week, the tides are turning and support for licensing and regulating Internet poker versus infringing on Internet freedom is growing," stated Chairman of the Poker Players Alliance and former Senator Alfonse D'Amato. "The Poker Players Alliance is pleased that Senator Menendez chose to introduce his bill to license and regulate live poker online and include additional consumer protections. His continued support for protecting the Internet freedoms of poker players, specifically, and Americans generally, is greatly appreciated."

Momentum has also been building for Federal rules to license and control online poker games. Throughout National Poker Week, Poker Players Alliance associates from all 50 states merged in Washington, D.C., to come together with more than 100 members of the U.S. House and Senate to advance rules to license and regulate online poker. At the same time, more than 210,000 letters were dispatched to Washington heartening legislators help for the privileges of poker players.

Law initiated in the House of Representatives by Financial Services Chairman Barney Frank (D-MA), H.R. 2267, now has more than 50 supporters, and with this new Senate bill the Poker Players Alliance will continue its promotion during the August recess so that central Senators know their voters want them to support this bill.

Central provisions of the bill contain:

  1. Formation of a register of unlicensed online gambling promoters that will reinforce efforts of genuinely unlawful gambling.
  2. Obligatory application of technologies to safeguard against underage gambling and to supervise and uncover individuals with gaming addiction.
  3. Committed financial support to construct and execute prevention and treatment programs for gamblers with addiction.
  4. Procedures to gather the billions of dollars in tax revenue that is currently being lost.
  5. Simplification of the Wire Act to produce viscosity in how online gambling undertakings, such as horse race betting, are dealt with nether Federal law.
"Today's action by Senator Menendez is yet another powerful step towards protecting Internet freedom, protecting consumers and protecting online poker. On behalf of the members of the PPA and online poker players nationwide, I thank Senator Menendez for his leadership on this important issue," expressed D'Amato.
