Poker Players Alliance Responds to Text in Internet Gambling Bill

John Pappas, executive director of the Poker Players Alliance (PPA), responds to the vague summary text in the proposed Internet Gambling Bill for 2012.

A Poker News article mentions this...

John Pappas, executive director of the PPA, said the organization has reached out to the offices of the bill's authors, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) and Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ari.), to express these concerns. Many of the issues are based on the vagueness to the wording of the summary text. Pappas indicated that the PPA's main objective is to get a hold of the draft bill in order to see how the actual language might affect these concerns.
And Pappas has all the reason to be concerned, because of this...

"We've asked for the language multiple times and it's not being shared with us or anyone that I'm aware of," Pappas said. "Even other key Senators in the process do not have the language. We're at a disadvantage not knowing exactly what is meant by parts of the summary text."
And because of the wording in the summary text...

The summary text states that "no licensee or other U.S. person may accept bets or wagers from persons located in other countries."
Visit Poker News for the full article.

Pappas isn't the only one concerned about the "fine print" or summary text as they call it...
Because many online poker players would like the full understanding of this new gambling bill before it's passed.
Live and Let Live, but most importantly: Have Fun doing it!
