House committee to vote on gambling ban

Well, tomorrow is the big day for their vote and I am hoping that they make the right decision and do away with the whole thing. Regulating may not be easy but I think that word of mouth online for the safest places to gamble helps a lot. There are many places people can go to get a list of blacklisted or rogue casinos.

The US House Committee on Financial Services is to vote on 24 June on whether to dissolve the controversial Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of 2006.
The Committee has marked up legislation (H.R. 5767) that would prohibit the Department of the Treasury and Federal Reserve System from proposing, prescribing or implementing any regulations related to the current ban on internet gambling.
"Congress has studied this issue and heard from the financial services community and federal regulators that the current ban on internet gambling is burdensome and doomed to fail," said Jeffrey Sandman, a spokesman for the Safe and Secure Internet Gambling Initiative.

As to the addictive players gambling online, that and regulations for underage gamblers may be a challenge for them, but I am sure they will figure something out. But also, most of the casinos ask for picture IDs before making payouts so that should also help.
