Barney Franks Bill Comes Up For a Vote

Sunshine Slots has been staying abreast of Representative Barney Frank’s bill that would repeal the UIGEA law currently on the books. We just learned that the bill, HR 2267, could come up for a vote in February. As you know, the bill would regulate and tax online gambling. John Pappas, the executive director of Poker Players Alliance, posted a message asking his members for support in achieving what could be a landmark decision on the fate of internet gambling in the United States . He asked that players contact their representatives in support of this crucial vote. Unless this bill is passed by June 1, 2010, the UIGEA law will continue to create problems for the online industry. Sunshine Slots will continue to keep you posted about this important legislation.
